A healthified version of everyone's favorite - chicken parm!

  • 1 lbs. chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range
  • Italian herbs or seasoning, organic to taste
  • garlic powder, organic to taste
  • onion powder, organic to taste
  • sea salt, unrefined, & fresh ground pepper, organic to taste
  • 2 slc. sprouted whole grain bread, from organic grains
  • 2 tbs. cheese, parmesan, raw, organic
  • 1 egg, yolk, free-range or cage free, organic
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil, raw, extra-virgin, organic
  • 1/2 c. cheese, mozzarella, whole fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic

Season chicken with Italian herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and pepper. Let sit in a covered container in the fridge to absorb the spices.

Meanwhile, pulse dried bread in a food processor to make bread crumbs (may need to toast the bread first to dry it out a bit). Mix bread crumbs with grated Parmesan cheese and additional Italian herbs, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, and pepper.

Remove chicken from fridge. Lightly beat the egg yolk, and pour over the chicken. Then roll chicken in bread crumb mixture. Brown in coconut oil, top with mozzarella, and bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes.

Serve with tomato sauce and pasta, spaghetti squash, or zucchini noodles. Yum!
