Baked Chicken Tender Salad: Makes 4 servings
2 lbs (4 large) skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks (24 oz cooked)
5 tbsp Nut Flour
½ cup Parmesan (the real stuff - it melts better)
1 tsp Paprika
½ tsp Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb
4 cups shredded romaine or spring mix (your choice)
1 cup shredded red cabbage
1 cup shredded green cabbage
1 cup chopped colored bell peppers
1 cup chopped cucumber
For the Sauce:
½ cup of water
4 tbsp cilantro, chopped fine plus more for topping
3 tbsp G. Huges Sugar Free Sweet Chili Sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet and line with parchment paper.
Put nut flour, parm, paprika, & Mrs. Dash in a gallon ziplock or bowl.
Put a few chunks of chicken at a time into the cheese, nut spice mixture and mix well to coat evenly, then place coated chicken on the lined baking sheet.
Bake 6 – 7 minutes. Turn over then cook another 6 – 8 minutes or until cooked though.
While the chicken is cooking chop the veggies and portion the salads.
Meanwhile combine the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together. drizzle 1 tbsp of sauce over the top of each of the four salads.
When the chicken is ready, divide in four equal portions place each portion on top of each salad, toss slightly and finish each salad by drizzling 1 tbsp of sauce over the top of each of the four salads (& garnish with cilantro) .
You can also use the Air Fryer & ground chicken or turkey also if you prefer. I love that this recipe allows me to make on of the healthy versions of my kiddos favorite dishes but spice it up in such a way that even the parents can enjoy.
Did you know studies show: Fried foods, such as fried chicken, battered fish, hamburgers, french fries and fried noodles, can all hold high levels of trans fat. Trans fat increases your "bad" cholesterol and lowers your "good" cholesterol. A high intake of TRANS FATS is associated with all sorts of chronic diseases, including heart disease, obesity, cancer, and diabetes. Limiting consumption of fried foods provides an effective means of reducing intake of trans fats.
