RECIPE: Almond Crusted Chicken

Chicken is a favorite source of protein around here. When I went grocery shopping the other day I picked up a couple of pounds of fresh organic chicken tenders. It's cold and rainy here in Northern California this weekend, and "comfort" food seemed to be in order. It's fun finding Paleo recipes that fill the "Comfort Food" void for this Southern girl! How does Almond Crusted Chicken,  Roasted Acorn Squash and a Tomato and Blue Salad sound? Sounds great to me!

Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders
10 chicken tenders
1 large egg
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup chopped raw almonds
sea salt
fresh ground pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Wash and dry the chicken.
3. Crack an egg into a bowl and whisk until blended. Put almond meal and chopped raw almonds into another bowl.
 4. Coat each piece of chicken with egg.
 5. Then coat chicken (with egg) with almond flour mixture.
 6. Place chicken in greased pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
7. Bake for 20 minutes.
I'll be posting the recipe for the acorn squash next!
