Tired of chicken this or chicken that? Well me too! These days I hardly prepare chicken the same… ever! Since I bought the gigantic bag of flax seed at costco, I am discovering many new uses for it. This flax seed coated chicken recipe involves Italian seasonings and herbs, but the flax seed really provides limitless seasoning options. Instead of shake and bake or bread crumbs, try coating your chicken in golden ground flax seed next time you bake chicken. The flax seed provides a nutty flavor, along with heart healthy fats and fiber.
Flax seed Italian “breading”
¼ cup ground flax seed
2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp garlic powder
Italian seasonings (parsley, oregano, etc) to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Dice chicken into even sized pieces. Roll chicken in “breading” and place in baking dish. Cook for 30 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly.
This recipe has the flavor and the appeal for all ages. It also received the man stamp of approval by my picky husband to be!
