You dont have to actually fry your chicken to get that tempting fried taste. This recipe is cooked in the oven and has a delicious nuttiness from the almonds to top it off.

1 cup(s) bread crumbs, whole-wheat, coarse, dried

1/4 cup(s) cheese, Parmesan (1 ounce), grated

1/4 cup(s) nuts, almonds finely chopped

2 tablespoon parsley, fresh chopped

1 clove(s) garlic crushed

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon thyme, dried

1 pinch pepper, black ground

1/4 cup(s) oil, olive, extra-virgin

2 pounds chicken, breast, boneless, skinless pounded to 1/2" thickness and cut into 12 pieces

1 sprig(s) parsley, Italian for garnish


1Preheat the oven to 400F. In a medium bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, almonds, parsley, garlic, salt, thyme, and pepper. Mix thoroughly.

2Place the oil in a shallow dish. Dip the chicken first in the oil, then dredge in the crumb mixture. Place the chicken in a shallow baking pan.

3Bake for 25 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of a piece registers 165F and the juices run clear. (Do not turn the chicken during cooking.) Garnish with the parsley.
