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.
