Super Low-Carb & Gluten-Free Breaded Chicken

Super Low-Carb & Gluten-Free Breaded Chicken

This recipe is so simple! This is because  a) you only need four basic ingredients to make it, b) it’s EXTREMELY easy to make, c) it takes no time to put together, c) it’s super healthy – in the sense that it features a perfect combination of lean protein, healthy fats, and fibre. It’s also very low in carbs, gluten-free, and dare we say ‘paleo’? Check it out:


1 large or two medium chicken breast (if you don’t eat chicken, try this with tofu!)
1/4 cup of flax mix
1/2 cup of ground almonds
1 tbsp unflavoured pea protein powder
1 large fresh egg
Herbamere or salt to taste +/- any additional herbs you may want to throw in there (i.a. dried basil, dried parsley, dried rosemary, dried sage)


1. Slice your chicken breast into 1-inch ‘fingers’ or ‘shapes.’ You could cut them into round ‘blobs’ as well if what you want to end up are chicken nuggets.

2. Get two big bowls out. In one of them, add the dry ingredients (i.e. the flax + almonds + salt etc). In the other one, add your egg and whisk it.

3. Dip the chicken into the egg to coat it and then dip the egg-coated chicken into the other bowl (the one with the flax etc).

4. Bake, ideally on a grilling pan at 180 C (around 350 F) for around 20 minutes or until your chicken has cooked through in the middle.

5. Presto! You’re done.
