Healthy Shake N Bake Chicken

Monday, March 11, 2013



Who remembers Shake N Bake Chicken?! Woa woa woa that stuff was good!  It's like the best artificially tasting coated chicken meal ever ha!  Well the other evening I decided to try and come up with a healthy version of the (not so healthy) classic.  HOLY Shake N Bake this tuned out awesome! 

What you will need:
  • 1-2 pounds of chicken strips
  • 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast
  •  1/2 cup of almond meal
  • 1/4 tsp of garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp of pepper
Directions:
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees
  2. Place everything inside of a freezer size zip lock bag.
  3. Shake shake shake it up until each chicken piece is evenly coated.
  4. Place the coated pieces of chicken in an oven safe dish and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. 
  5. Enjoy!  


This has the perfect amount of crunch on the outside, it's super moist on the inside and so much good for you flavor your taste buds will do a happy dance.  Even my husband said, "This IS Shake N Bake!"  This is also virtually carb free because it is made with almond meal instead of flour.  So eat up!

Love Shake an Bake...actually made a recipe similar to this...you can coat the chicken in Dijon mustard, then add in rosemary to the crushed almonds. Really good.

These make me so happy! I bought some nutritional yeast and almond meal last time I was at Wegman's (an hour away!) and I just looked at the yeast yesterday thinking about what I would do with it! Thanks!

This sounds fantabulous!! I've been looking for a good healthy chicken recipe, most chicken is usually end up eating is either fried or McNuggets (which I love so much) and for some reason just plain grilled chicken breasted is boring to me, I love ranch with my chicken no matter how hard I try not to put some on. Thanks fir posting! ;)

I am so embarrassed to ask but since I don't cook that often I don't know lol, but around what degree to you set the oven for?

These look delicious & I love Shake N Bake! I always had a problem with the coating falling off when I cooked it so I had to dip the chicken in egg first. It looks like yours stayed on fine. Did you do anything special like keep the chicken wet vs. pat drying it?
