Chicken Marinade

·      1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts 4 pieces
·      2 tablespoons lemon juice
·      1 tablespoon olive oil
·      1 tablespoon rosemary fresh, finely chopped*
·      1 tablespoon thyme fresh, finely chopped
·      1 tablespoon sage fresh, finely chopped
·      3/4 teaspoon sea salt
·      black pepper to taste

Almond Coating

·      1 egg
·      3/4 cup almond flour
·      3/4 teaspoon sea salt
·      3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
·      black pepper to taste


1.    Add the marinade ingredients to the chicken, and mix well to evenly coat. Allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes, up to overnight.
2.    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
3.    Add the egg to one bowl, and beat it.
4.    Add the almond coating ingredients to another bowl, and mix to combine.
5.    Take each piece of chicken, and dip it in the egg wash, and then dredge it in the almond flour mixture. Place on a baking tray. Using parchment paper makes it easier to remove from the pan, but it will brown more if you place it directly on a baking sheet greased with olive oil.
