Getting tired of plain grilled or baked meat?  Here’s a recipe that adds a different, crunchy twist to chicken.

Nut-Crusty Chicken


  • 3 medium chicken breasts
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt or Himalayan pink salt

Put the pecans and almonds through a food processor, or just chop up fine. (I chopped mine with my Vita-Mix.)

Dip the chicken breasts in the egg whites and then roll in the nuts.  Salt to taste.

Bake at 350 degrees until the chicken reaches 160 degrees on the meat thermometer — or about 30 minutes or so.

This recipe has a glycemic index of zero, and came out crispy and tasty — even at the hands of this incompetent cook!

Eating to live and living for Christ,
