The Hungry Nomad: Almond Crusted Chicken (baked)- Low carb meal

Almond Crusted Chicken (baked)- Low carb meal

Dear Readers, 

As you may know by now there is nothing I love more than food. However, in order to start the new year fresh and rejuvenated I decided to try the Wild rose cleanse. Many friends have recommended the cleanse and have had great results and for some wild reason I thought this would be a good idea. So here I am on day 3 of the 12 day cleanse and I am barely surviving. However, one good thing that has come out of this cleanse is that I have had to get creative with what I eat (which unfortunately does not include any sugary products or flour based food...which cuts out 80% of my meals!!!)

Almonds are one of the most recommended on the food chart and for today's meals I decided to try making almond crusted chicken for the first time. It turned out to be sooooooooooooo delicious and it only took less than 30 minutes to make. I can't wait to make it again.  

1-cup raw almonds
1 1/2 teaspoons spices i.e. pepper/paprika/garlic/salt/turmeric
2 teaspoons of parm cheese and flour (or shake and bake)- optional
2 large eggs whites
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)
Spray olive oil

Serve with Salad /tomatoes/steamed broccoli

Finely chop the almonds in a mini-chopper or food processor. Transfer the nuts to a shallow dish and stir in the spices, parm. and flour. Lightly whisk the egg whites in another shallow dish. Pat the chicken dry. Cut into smaller pieces or keep whole. Transfer each piece to the almond mixture; turn to coat evenly. Discard any remaining egg white and almond mixture. Place the coated chicken on the prepared rack and coat with cooking spray; turn and spray the other side. At this point you can either fry with olive oil in a pan or bake until golden brown, crispy and no longer pink in the center.
