Almond Coconut Breaded Chicken with Peaches

Almond Coconut Breaded Chicken with Peaches

Those that read Splendid Recipes and More may have noticed our favorite way of using chicken is in salads, and therefore Salad as a Main Course. We bought some Herb Blend salad greens, which are a mix of red and green Romaine, red and green Oak leaf, Lollo Rosa, and Tango. Those are the different lettuce leafs. The herbs included all organic: red and green Chard, Mizum, baby Spinach, Arugula, Frisbee, Radicchio, Parsley, Dill, and Cilantro.

Wow that’s a lot of green and red leafy greens with lots of flavor. Did you know Swiss chard contains fiber and syringic acid, both of which help to regulate blood sugar levels. Its great to the health of your skeletal system, as it contains calcium, magnesium, and vitamin-K.

It has cancer preventative properties because of the fiber, chlorophyll, phytochemicals, and other plant pigments it contains. Studies have found that leafy green vegetables are particularly beneficial against colon cancer.

This leafy green is high in iron, essential for maintaining the health of the circulatory system and the prevention of anemia. The vitamin-K it contains helps with blood clotting and prevents excessive bruising and bleeding.

Research has reported that 30 mcg per day of biotin is great for the health of your hair and one cup of Swiss chard contains about 10.5 mcg. Swiss chard is also high vitamin-C and vitamin-A, both of which assist the hair follicles in the production of sebum.

One cup of Swiss chard contains 9,276 mcg of lutein, an antioxidant that is essential for eye health. It is suggested we consume 6,000 to 10,000 mcg of lutein for excellent eye health and preventing eye degenerating diseases.

The last herb green mentioned is Tango. It is full of vitamin-A, C, and folates. It also has vitamin-k which plays a role in Alzheimer’s disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in the brain. So if your worried about getting this age related disease, just do the tango with the Tango green leaf herb.

This is what you need for the – Almond Coconut Breaded Chicken with Peaches -.

almond and coconut flour

Mix the two flours in a medium to large mixing bowl and set aside. Depending on the number of person’s you are serving, you will need 2 to 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts.

Cut each breast in half, then slice vertically into three slices, and cut each slice diagonally into three pieces.

Now throw some flour out onto a cutting surface, and bread the fillets on both sides liberally.

frying breaded chicken in coconut oil

Place the breaded chicken into a large heated pan with 3 to 4 tablespoons of coconut oil. Cook until done, about 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Pieces should cook to a golden brown. Plate and set aside.

Herb Salad Mix with avocado oil and lemon

To a salad bowl add 1/4 cup avocado oil, juice of 1/2 of a lemon, 1/4 teaspoon of Himalayan salt, and 1 teaspoon of dried basil. If you want you could add 2 to 3 tablespoons of wild honey. Next add the mixed greens, about 4 to 5 handfuls. Mix greens with avocado oil and seasoning until the greens are well coated. Adding the oil, lemon juice, and other seasonings to the bowl first, and then the greens last will assure an even coating.

Do this with any salad you make. If you add the greens first, then the nuts, dried cranberries, and grated or chucked cheese, and add the dressing last, it will not coat evenly and the nuts, cheese, and cranberries will always seem to not mix in evenly, with some mixed in and others at the bottom of the bowl.

Always add your dressing or vinaigrette, nuts, cheeses, cranberries and the like first, then the leafy greens last, so when mixed together everything is evenly mixed in the salad bowl.

Hiamalya Salt

You note we mentioned to use Himalayan salt, we posted an image so you can see the difference in regular table salt and rock salt in its original form when ground. In the image you can see darker specks, which are trace minerals apart from the salt. These trace minerals are vital to your diet and your health.

Plate the herb greens, top with some breaded chicken and some peach slices. We used fresh frozen peaches, when thawed they have the same flavor as a fresh peach. Fresh peaches though, when in season are a better choice. Enjoy!!
