After my recipe breakthrough last week (the Sugar Free Peppermint Slice you all seemed to love!) I seem to be on somewhat of a recipe roll…gluten free of course.
I have another delicious chocolate recipe to share with you – but to break it up a little I wanted to post this dinner recipe. I know, I know, I rarely do that but I wanted to show you how you can still make a healthy meal if you have limited time. Not that this is really a recipe, there are no specific amounts or measurements – just go with what you have on hand!
I’ve been making this a lot lately, as it is so easy – I love a recipe you can throw in the oven and get on with something else, makes life a lot easier!
Enjoy! Don’t forget if you make the recipe – to comment below and rate it out of 5 stars!
- Almond meal – either use premade/storebrought or whizz some almonds up in your thermomix. I find almond meal I’ve dried out from the leftover pulp after making my almond milk gives a great texture and flavour. You need enough to comfortably coat the chicken.
- Ground turmeric – to your taste, I’m pretty heavy handed with it! I use around 1 tbsp for 600gm chicken
- Chicken Breast – whatever size suits your family!
- Olive Oil
- Eggs – depends on how much chicken you are using, for 600gm chicken I used 3 eggs
- Preheat the oven to 180 °C (that’s for fan forced) and drizzle olive oil over a baking tray.
- Mix your almond meal and turmeric together in a bowl.
- Whisk your eggs in another bowl – line the bowls up next to each other so you can have a production line going!
- Slice your chicken breasts into smaller, thinner pieces (remember the smaller they are, the faster they cook so adjust the cooking time if need be!).
- Place the chicken breasts in the eggs, make sure they’re covered then place into the almond meal mixture and cove with the coating.
- Place chicken breasts onto baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. I also sprinkle over any leftover crumb mixture.
- Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve with a nice salad or some veggies.
The smaller your chicken pieces are, the faster they will cook – so be careful! If you want a faster dinner make the pieces smaller and turn the oven up slightly.
Well this is a very loose recipe – so perhaps try some paprika instead of or as well as turmeric, or garlic flakes. Even add some dried herbs, such as oregano.
Use coconut oil instead of olive oil.
