You will need:
4 chicken breast
3 tablespoon creole seasoning or cayenne pepper
3 tablespoon cajun pepper
120g flour for dusting
Handful of almonds flakes
120g breadcrumbs /4 pieces of bread blended to become breadcrumbs
Canola oil (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees. To pane, you’ll need three separate bowls, one for the flour seasoned with cajun and cayenne pepper (adjust seasoning to personal preference), the second is the lightly beaten eggs and third is the breadcrumbs with almond flakes. Dip each piece of chicken into the seasoned flour, tap off the excess flour before dipping it into the eggs, let the excess fall back into the dish. Then press both sides of the chicken into the breadcrumbs and almond flakes to coat. Repeat process to all chicken breasts. Place a baking sheet on your baking tray then oven roast the almond chicken till crispy and golden in colour. Bake for at least 15 – 20mins, check whether the chicken is cooked through by piercing a knife through the thickest part of the meat. Serve right away with a nice fresh salad.
