Fixate Oven-Fried Chicken

This recipe is so versatile! It's used 2 or 3 times in Fixate but the possibilities are endless! So far I have made the Chicken and Protein waffles recipe and I've also used this for the Chicken Parmesan recipe. Both were absolutely delicious and very satisfying. You really would think these are cheat meals.


Chicken Ingredients


2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted
1 tbsp cornmeal
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground black powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1/2 tsp baking powder, gluten-free
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tbsp grated parmigiano cheese
1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 large egg white (2 tbsp.)
4 (4-oz. each) raw chicken breasts, boneless, skinless
1 tbsp EVOO
