Recipe: CocoNUT-Flax Chicken

If you miss breaded chicken, then this is the recipe for you! Instead of using bread crumbs or cornflakes (or any other gluten-heavy grain), try grinding up nuts and mixing them with ground flax and shredded coconut for a delicious Paleo "breading."

Ingredients:
-flax seed, ground
-almonds
-pecans
-unsweetened shredded coconut
-4 chicken cutlets
-2 eggs

1. Preheat oven to 400°. Grind nuts until a thin flour is formed, then combine on a plate (or in a bowl) with flax and shredded coconut and mix well.

2. Crack two eggs on a plate and add water to make an egg wash. Dip the chicken breast into the egg wash, then place it in the nut/flax/coconut flour and coat well. Place on greased pan.


3. Cook for 20 minutes (10 on each side) until slightly brown. Serve alone or with greens and enjoy!
