Almond Crusted Lemon Chicken

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2-4 

  • 2 chicken breasts 
  • 1 cup almond meal 
  • 1 egg 
  • 2 lemons 
  • handful of fresh parsley (about 3 tsp chopped)


  1. Cut chicken breasts in half, width wise, so they are thin.
  2. In a bowl, mix almond meal, finely chopped parsley & the zest of one lemon. 
  3. In another bowl, beat egg.
  4. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg and then in the almond mixture. 
  5. Using EVOO, cook chicken in a pan on low to medium heat until cooked thoroughly (about 5-10 minutes on each side). The outside of chicken should be a light golden color.Optional: Squeeze the juice of the first lemon on top of the chicken while it cooks.
  6. Serve with second squeezed lemon. I served mine with broccoli and brown rice.
