Ingredients:
3 large boneless

2 ounces parmesan
cheese, 1/2 cup
2 ounces almond
flour, 1/2 cup
1/2 teaspoon garlic

Cut each chicken breast in half to make 2 servings
from each; cover with plastic wrap and flatten. Mix

Nice! Never thought of using almond flour instead of a wheat flour. No carbs this way! :)

Can't wait to try almond flour on chicken.

I have never heard of Almond Flour before. I bet this would give the dish a wonderful flavor.

I love parmesan chicken and this sounds great.

Thanks.

Almond flour is a great flour replacer in breading and for cake flour. French cooking has a lot of almond flour cakes. I started using almond flour in cooking/baking after we learned that DS2 is allergic to wheat and suffers from a yeast condition. He has to keep his carbs low. But even though we are VERY careful about his diet the yeast load gets out of control. He gets tested for yeast load twice a year and if they are too high he has to take a 21 day course of yeast infection medication. :( Almond flour has been a lifesaver.
