I can’t think of many people who don’t like a good parmesan chicken dinner. The good news is that the chicken provides ample protein for getting lean, the bad news is that the added bread crumb crust provides ample carbohydrates/unnecessary calories for gaining fat. There is a solution! Just like our Mozzarellean Cheese sticks, we have substituted the fattening bread crumbs with the almighty ALMOND FLOUR! If you are used to making this recipe with bread crumbs, try it with the almond flour and don’t tell your spouse. I bet they won’t notice. For the best results, we recommend using the Perdue Fit & Easy Thin-Sliced chicken breasts.
P.S. This meal goes great with spaghetti squash.
