This almond parmesan chicken is one that is based on a recipe that my Mom made for our family for years. I’m not actually sure where she got the recipe from because it’s been so long since it was introduced to our meal rotation. But we ate it fairly regularly because it was so yummy and very simple to prepare as well.
When I decided to make it, I wanted to make a few changes to it. The original recipe calls for the use of bread crumbs, but since I am eating primarily gluten and grain-free, I wanted to do an updated version that works for the grain-free crowd. This version has all of the flavor of the original, with one simple substitution…using almond (or cashew) meal in place of the bread crumbs.
It’s a simple recipe and only took about 10 minutes to put together and another 40 minutes to cook. Serve it with some steamed veggies or some of our roasted potatoes and yum…..a simple and incredibly tasty meal!
