Healthy “Fried” Chicken

 

From Fit Men Cook

 

Being from the South, fried foods are pretty common. But, because of the tons of fatty calories from bread and oil, it certainly doesn’t complement a healthy diet. Here’s a guiltless way to make nearly any fried “meat” dish using two of my favorite ingredients – wheat germ and Kelapo Coconut Oil. This is also a great dish for parties, especially for Game Day.

 

Ingredients:

 

Chicken breasts (I used 7oz)

4 tbsp Wheat Germ

1 tbsp Flax seed (optional but adds a crunchiness to the batter)

1 egg white (or 1 tbsp BBQ sauce or mustard if you have egg allergies, or if you are “frying” veggies and do not want animal products)

Kelapo Coconut Oil Spray

Seasonings to taste: cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, pinch of sea salt

 

Instructions:

 

  1. Set oven to 375F.
  2. Wash a chicken breast in cold water and then pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. In a bowl, mix wheat germ with seasonings. If you would like to add flax seed, then go ahead.
  4. Whip an egg white in another bowl. Dip chicken breast strips in the egg white mixture.
  5. Dip strips in the wheat germ mixture and cover completely.
  6. Lightly spray a baking pan with Kelapo Coconut Oil. Place “breaded” chicken strips on the baking sheet. Then lightly spray the strips with Kelapo Coconut Oil.
  7. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.
  8. Remove and devour!
