Forget KFC and Make Your Own Healthy Crispy Chicken!

by Maria on November 17, 2011

I was very happy when I found this recipe in Ann Louise Gittleman’s book: “The Fat Flush Cookbook” so I thought I’d share it here. I tried it and it was a big hit here at home, plus it was very easy to prepare. It is a great dish to combine with a big raw salad or steamed vegetables. You’ll feel satisfied but mostly happy that you didn’t have to go to KFC for your comfort food craving!

Crispy Non-Fried Chicken

(Original recipe from “The Fat Flush Cookbook” byAnn Louise Gittleman )

4              5-ounce chicken breasts

¾ cup    organic chicken broth

1 Tbsp   olive oil

1 cup     spelt bread crumbs (I recommend ShaSha Co.)

1 tsp      dried tarragon

1 tsp      dried rosemary, crushed

1 tsp      fresh or dried parsley, chopped

1 tsp      garlic powder

1 tsp      mustard

1 tsp      tamari sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350⁰F. In a bowl, place chicken broth and olive oil. In plate, mix together the spelt bread crumbs, tarragon, rosemary, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Rub the chicken breast with mustard and tamari sauce and then dip them, one at a time, in the broth-oil mixture. Then coat with the bread crumb-herb mixture. Bake in the oven until brown and cooked through. Depending on the thickness of the breasts, it can take about 30-45 minutes.
