If you have food allergies substitutions are provided if possible.
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 breasts)
1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour ** or gluten substitute. my favorites are potatoes or coconut.
2 egg whites, beaten
6 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese or a goat cheese if you desire dairy free
1 tsp fines herbs, dried (mixture of dried
chives, parsley, basil, and tarragon)
3 plum (Roma) tomatoes, seeded and
chopped. If you have inflammation use grapes instead since tomatoes can increase joint inflammation.
2 tsp shredded fresh basil leaves
1 lemon, juiced
Dash of black pepper
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
4 cups mixed baby salad greens (mesclun mix)
1. Trim any visible fat from the chicken breasts and slice them into four 4-ounce servings. Place the chicken between two sheets of waxpaper or plastic wrap. Pound with the bottom of a pan or rolling pin until the meat is 1⁄4- to1⁄2-inch thick.
2. Prepare three pie plates or flat-bottomed bowls and place the flour, egg whites, and Parmesan in each respectively. Toss the dried herbs in with the cheese. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dip the meat into the flour, then the egg white, and finally the cheese.
Shake off any excess egg white before coating with the cheese. It is best to use one hand for the dry coatings and one for the wet to avoid clumping the batter.
3. Spray a nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over moderate heat. Sauté the chicken until cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
4. While the chicken is cooking, combine the tomato and basil in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the lemon juice and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil, then pour the mixture over the tomatoes.
5. To serve, toss the greens with the tomato and dressing and divide among four plates. Top with the chicken.
It’s really simple and easy to make. You can serve this to a crowd or for lunch.
