Directions

1.     Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In small bowl, mix together egg whites and milk. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour/meal or whole wheat breadcrumbs, garlic powder, pepper, oregano). Dip flattened chicken breasts into egg/milk mixture and then coat with dry ingredient mixture.

 

2.     Place chicken in skillet with about a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat and cook 2-3 minutes each side until lightly browned.

 

3.     Remove chicken from skillet and place on baking dish (if using cast iron skillet, simply transfer to oven) sprayed with a bit of oil to prevent sticking. Bake in oven for 20 minutes at 375 degrees F.

 

4.     While chicken is baking, combine all bruschetta topping ingredients in a medium-sized bowl, and refrigerate until chicken is done.

 

5.     Top the chicken off with the bruschetta topping and serve with a side of quinoa, rice, or whole wheat pasta and steamed vegetables.
