Since the breading has its own source of “oil” inside, you don’t need to fry this chicken to get that same texture.  Although it’s not a huge priority for me, this recipe is also 100% carb free.  Enjoy!!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 egg, beaten and seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1 cup seasoned “Breadcrumbs
  • 1 lb mushrooms of your choice
  • 1/2 lemon
  • fresh herbs of choice (optional)

Method:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a pyrex dish with mushrooms and season them with salt and pepper.  Dip the chicken into the egg, and then coat and press with “breadcrumbs”. Place the chicken on top of the mushrooms and bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chicken). You can always use a thermometer and remove the chicken when it reaches 165 degrees. Drizzle lemon juice over the top and serve.  Sprinkle with fresh herbs (optional).

That’s it!!!
