Servings: 4 people
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
- 2 Tbsp raw honey
- 1 cup breadcrumbs gluten-free if necessary
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 1 Tbsp Homemade Ranch Seasoning Mix
- 1 Tbsp ground flax seed optional
- 2 lbs chicken, cut into 2"x2" chunks
- salt and pepper
Mix egg mixture ingredients in shallow dish. Mix bread mixture ingredients in a separate shallow dish. Cut chicken into 2 inch by 2 inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.
Dredge chicken in egg mixture then in breadcrumb mixture.
Place coated chicken pieces on cooling rack on top of baking sheet. The cooling rack will allow the chicken to be crispy on each side. Spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. The spray will help the breading to become brown and crispy.
Bake at 375F for 15-20 minutes or until browned on the outside and cooked through on the inside.
