South Beach Phase One "breaded Chicken"

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sweetan811

Perfect recipe for those needing breaded chicken. It has been the one thing I'v being craving since starting the I got creative. It may sound a little odd at first, but the outcome is crunchy, moist, flavorful, and tasty chicken. Really very good recipe! (tip - use thin cut chicken breasts, they cook faster and are uniform size.)

I took some liberty with it, as it was all unmeasured. I didn't measure anything! Used ground almonds and sunflower seeds, a little rice flour and the flax seeds. Then I baked (the nuggest) in the oven at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Turned out yummy. Thanks. UPDATE: This made it into my Top Fav's of 2009 cookbook. Original Review 7-27-09.
