Walnut-Crusted Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread, dried
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 large egg white
  • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • Lemon slices, for serving
  • Seasonal green salad

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a food processor, combine bread, walnuts, and Parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Process until fine breadcrumbs form. Transfer to a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, beat egg white until frothy.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dip each breast into egg white, letting excess drip off, and then into crumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
  3. In a large nonstick ovenproof skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, 1 to 3 minutes. Carefully turn chicken over and put skillet in oven. Bake until chicken is golden brown and cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes.
  4. Serve chicken with lemon slices and green salad.

Walnuts are rich in Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, to help quench free radicals and stop them from destroying your skin. They also are packed full of omega 3 fatty acids which are anti inflammatory and help with the skin’s moisturization. Eat them whenever you can!
