Almond Chicken "Nuggets"

4-6 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup ground almond meal

Mix almond meal and cheese together and set aside. Cut chicken into even size pieces or strips; about 2-3 strips per chicken depending on the size of breast. Rinse chicken in water, slightly pat dry and dip in almond mixture. Bake in a grease dish or on a raise cookie sheet @ 350 degrees about 25 minutes or until done. Flip chicken once while cooking.

Great as kid friendly chicken nuggets, on top of a salad, with rice or any side dish.

Hey Amy, where can Almond Meal be found?

I bought my almond meal at Trader Joes in Maryland. You should be able to find it at any health food store. You can also use ground almonds or buy a buy a bag of raw almonds at Costco and blend them up yourself.

Another option for chicken nuggest would be using the Italian Parmesan mixture.
