Crispy Chicken

You can make chicken so many different ways with all kinds of different ingredients.  Since I’ve had kids I always try to sneak healthy ingredients in my recipes.  The secret in this chicken is putting some chia flax seed mix into my breading.  It actually gives the breading a nice flavor and great crunch!

Ingredients

3 chicken breasts

1/2 cup oil (I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil)

2 eggs

1 cup  bread crumbs

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon  herb mix

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons chia flax seed mix

 

First I start by pounding the chicken breasts.  I like to make my clean up nice and easy so I use 2 pieces of plastic wrap and put the chicken breasts between it.  Pound the chicken using what ever you like.  I have a little meat mallet, but the bottom of a mason jar works great too!

For the breading add bread crumbs, seasonings, and chia flax seed mix to a shallow dish.  Pie plates work great for this!  Gives you plenty of room to get all that breading on the chicken.

Crack 2 eggs in to a shallow bowl and whisk together.  Now you are ready to set up your assembly line

Let the oil heat up for a couple of minutes.  Dip your chicken into the egg,  in the bread crumb mixture, and in to that hot skillet. I can fit 2 chicken breasts in to my skillet at a time.

Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.

Let cool and Enjoy!  This is one of my kids favorites and they don’t even know that I sprinkled in a little fiber, omega 3’s into their diet.
