Happy Family Weekend! It was awesome to have a three day weekend with not too much on the agenda. We really "chilled out" given the storm blowing outside and our unwillingness to go anywhere. We spent dinner discussing what we are going to do this summer when it warms up. My three year-old daughter wants to "take an ice cream cone to the park and eat it under a tree". So sweet. Little does she know I plan to get an ice cream maker before summer so she will be eating home-made ice-cream with very little sugar. And I'm not sure if there is a park we can walk to without our ice cream melting. So a few logistics to work out but doesn't that sound wonderful. The simple joys of life and the little ones to remind us of them when its howling outside.
And here is a simple recipe that is really tasty. Another one of my go-to recipes that I have "cleaned-up" to make it grain-free and low carbohydrate. The breading is very similar to my Parmesan Chicken and Cordon Bleu crust but hey - if it ain't broke don't fix it - just give it a tune up. It was pretty delicious and moist.

Ingredients (Serves 3 - 4)
- 3 large chicken breasts cut in half or 6 small chicken breasts
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 2/3 cup blanched almond flour (almond meal flour would work as well)
- 1 tbsp golden ground flax seed
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 1/3 cup butter (melted)
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 fresh lemon, sliced into six rings (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray/Greese a 9 x 13 baking dish with olive oil. Mix the breading ingredients together in a shallow pan. Put the beaten egg in a separate shallow pan. Dip each chicken breast in the egg and then in the breading mix. Place in baking dish. Mix the melted butter, garlic and lemon juice together. Spoon/drizzle the mixture over the breaded chicken breasts. Place a lemon slice on top of each chicken breast. Bake for 40 minutes or until breading is slightly browned. Dribble any drippings/butter sauce in the bottom of the pan over the baked chicken before serving.
