I was craving some fried chicken the other night so I had to think up a Paleo friendly recipe. Here is the recipe ENJOY!!!!
2 cups Almond meal ( I just put almonds in the blender so that it was pretty chunky) or you can mix 1 cup almond meal and 1 cup shredded coconut and or coconut flour
*1 cup grated Parmesan (For those of you Paleo eaters that eat dairy, if not then skip the parmesan)
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil, divided
2 tablespoons freshly minced thyme leaves
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup Paleo friendly Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 pounds boneless skinless organic free-range chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 -inch thickness
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Place a cooling rack over pan and spray rack with nonstick cooking spray.
In a shallow dish, combine almond meal, cheese (if desired), 2 tablespoons coconut oil, thyme, salt and pepper, to taste. In a separate shallow dish, combine paleo friendly mustard, water, salt and pepper, to taste, and remaining coconut oil. Coat each chicken breast with mustard mixture; dredge each in almond mixture. Place on prepared rack in pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown. Serve immediately. I served it up with a side of cauliflower mash!
