Sewing project
Recipe Im interested in trying!  I saw this on fb and Im dying to try it!!! Doesnt it look  delish!!!???!!  And since my  chicken breasts are so thick....  slicing in half just makes for leftovers the next day!  yayayayayay!


You start with 4 large chicken breasts.  If you like, you can pound them thin, however, I prefer to simply slice them in half longitudinally.  Slice them as if you were going to stuff them, but then keep on cutting until the two pieces separate.  This way you have chicken cutlets!  You can place a piece of plastic over them and pound them thinner, if you like, but I didn't think it was necessary for my chicken. This way of cooking chicken is incredibly flavorful.  You can serve it with your favorite sides.  My family loved this chicken recipe.  

3/4 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR simply ground almonds/almond flour mixed (175 mL)
  with a bit of coconut flour 
1/2  cup grated Parmesan cheese, (60 mL)
  (not the fresh kind)
3/4  tsp salt (3 mL)
1/2  tsp Italian seasoning (see below in Helpful Hints) (2 mL)
1/4  tsp black pepper (1 mL)
3 eggs
1 tbsp water (15 mL)
4 large chicken breasts
Light-tasting olive oil, for frying
Lemon wedges
Chopped parsley

In medium bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, Parmesan cheese, salt, Italian seasoning and black pepper.  Mix well.  In another medium bowl, beat eggs and water together well with a fork. 

Remove any excess fat or tiny chips of bone from the chicken.  Slice the chicken breasts in half longitudinally.  Slice them as if you were going to stuff them, but then keep on cutting until the two pieces separate.

Dip each piece of chicken in egg wash and then spoon seasoned bake mix over chicken pieces. 

In two nonstick frying pans, place 3 pieces of prepared chicken.  Fry 5 minutes on medium heat on one side until golden brown underneath, flip carefully and fry another 4 to 6 minutes, lowering the temperature, if they are becoming too brown.  Check smaller pieces of chicken first.  Make sure there is no pink and that the chicken is white throughout.  Do not overcook or the chicken will no longer be tender.  You want the chicken to be moist and tender under the “breading.”  Serve with lemon wedges and sprinkle chicken with chopped parsley.

Helpful Hints:  Olive oil has not been taken into account in the nutritional analysis.Italian seasoning is a mixture of oregano, basil, marjoram, rosemary and thyme – mix in equal quantities to make your own version.

  1. That recipe looks really good, I hope you'll share how it turns out. It sounds as if you are really looking forward to getting together with your friends. I have a group of friends where we try to get together once a month and I am always so sad when I have to miss out like I did last month. Very cute pictures. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. I hope you get those aprons made! Have fun :) I hope you can stop by:
