This Healthy Baked Salsa Chicken is Paleo, grain-free, dairy-free and Whole30. And there is an adorable little story that goes along with it!
- 4 boneless chicken breasts
- 3 eggs, whisked
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup gluten-free nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 cup salsa (I suggest mild if serving to children)
- 1 avocado 1 avocado pitted and sliced
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In a medium bowl, combine almond meal, nutritional yeast, sea salt, garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder. Stir a few times to mix ingredients. Set aside for a minute.
Dip each of the chicken breasts into the whisked eggs until they are throughly coated. Then place chicken breasts in almond meal mixture and coat all sides of the chicken with the almond meal mixture.
Place chicken on a baking sheet or in a large baking dish and cook for about 25 minutes, or until juices run clear and the breasts are no longer pink in the middle.
Remove from oven and top each chicken piece with salsa and avocado.
