No More Boring Chicken!!

Ok, so sometimes don't you feel when you're eating low carb that you get sick of the taste of chicken?  I do!  When I snack, I usually eat flavored almonds.  They are sooo yummy, low carb and they help make you not feel hungry!  What could be better?!

Every time that I would snack on flavored almonds (which, by the way, Habenero BBQ is my favorite flavor right now...)  I kept thinking to myself, these would taste really good with chicken!  But I'm not really one to venture out and try my own recipes, so I got intimidated and never tried it out.

I just kept thinking about trying the almonds with the chicken and finally I got the guts to just go for it and see how it would taste.  OMG, it was sooo good!  Here's a picture of how my Almond Chicken turned out!

Here's a quick version of what I did (for the complete recipe, please visit my Recipe page):

 First I smashed up the flavored almonds. 
 Then I mixed the flavored almonds with grated Parmesan and carbquik.

I coated defrosted chicken with egg and then dipped it into the almond mixture, placed it on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and baked it in the oven!  It was so delicious!!  The chicken had a wonderful nutty flavor with a taste of habenero BBQ. Mmmmm....

That looks so yummy! I think I'm going to make that but I'm going to cut the chicken into small pieces for popcorn chicken!!!

Oooh! Good idea! Are you going to fry it instead of bake it?

No, I am going to bake... I try to stay healthy & cut as much fat as I can.
