Introduction

I adapted this recipe from a South Beach diet version. In cutting the recipe in half, I forgot to half the almonds. I really liked the very nutty taste, but you can use half my amount to keep the proportions the same. The South Beach recipe also contains Parmesan cheese (2Tb) which I left out due to a problem with dairy. I adapted this recipe from a South Beach diet version.

Ingredients

    2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
    1/2 c. almonds
    1 Tbsp. Parsley
    1 clove garlic
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 pepper
    1/2 c. Bread Crumbs (whole wheat or multi grain is awesome)
    2 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Pound chicken breast to 1/2" thickness and cut into 6 roughly equal pieces.

Place almonds into food processor or chopper. Process until very coarsely chopped. Add parsley, garlic, salt, and pepper to almonds and process until all are finely chopped. Add bread crumbs and pulse until combined.

Place crumb mixture into a shallow bowl and olive oil into another bowl. Dip chicken into oil and then dredge in crumb mixture. Place on baking pan and bake for 25 minutes or until done. Garnish with parsley sprigs if desired. Makes 3 servings
