Almond Crusted Chicken

Almond Crusted Chicken
(1Red, 1Blue, 1Green)

All the crunch of fried chicken without all the calories! This nutty chicken is one of our household favorites.  We love nuts, so any excuse to incorporate them is awesome around here.  This is definitely one we will do again!!


1 1/2-2 pounds of chicken (or can do fish)
1/2 pound bag of unsalted almonds
3-4 egg whites
onion powder
garlic powder


  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil
  3. Brush the foil with a bit of Olive Oil
  4. In a food processor blend the almonds, salt, pepper, paprika, onion and garlic powders until fine.  Put into flat bowl
  5. Pound Chicken into thinner slices (top with plastic wrap and pound with cooking mallet). 
  6. After pounding, cut into reasonable sized pieces about the size of your hand
  7. Stir egg whites in a bowl, and dip meat in the egg. 
  8. Now dip in the almond mixture, and put in oven


  1. Bake for 25 minutes total.  10 min on first side, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes (so it doesn't get soggy).  Then turn the oven on broil for 5 more min, and will make it crispy and yummy!!!

Serve with salad.  (Also good with baked sweet potato - not pictured)
