Almond Crusted Chicken Schnitzel

A healthier take on schnitzel…

Serves 4


  • 2 organic chicken breast fillets ( sliced in half widthways )
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot
  • 1 organic / free range egg beaten
  • 1 cup ground almonds
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • Steamed green broccoli to serve


In a bowl, combine almonds, the zest of 1 lemon and parsley.
Lightly coat the chicken breast in the arrowroot then dip into the egg mix followed by the almond mix. You should have 4 lovely pieces of lean chicken, coated in a lovely almond crumb.

Cook over a low to medium heat in a pan using 1 tablespoon olive oil until lightly golden and chicken is cooked through.

Serve alongside steamed green vegetables with a squeeze of lemon and enjoy.
