Ingredients:

  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup raw peanuts
  • 4 tbs bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley flakes
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 lb organic chicken breasts, cut into strips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor, chop the peanuts into a coarse meal.

In a small bowl, house the oil.  In a separate medium sized bowl, combine the peanut meal, bread crumbs, garlic powder, parsley flakes and salt.  Dip the chicken strips first into the oil (allowing the excess oil to drip down) and then dredge them in the crumb mixture; pressing down to adhere it to the chicken.

Place them on the baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until cooked through; when sliced in the thickest part, the juices shourld run clear.
