FITNESS FRIDAY: Healthy Oven Fried Chicken

I was playing around with healthy alternatives this week! A comfort food staple in our house is fried chicken. What can I say, we’re from the south! I stumbled across this amazing ground nut mixture in the grocery store the other day. It’s a mixture of ground flax, pumpkin seeds, goji berries and sesame seeds. You can pretty much add it to anything you eat and it gives you a great dose of b12, fiber and omega 3!  A light bulb went off in my head and I decided to try the ground mixture as the breading/coating for my oven fried chicken. It turned out great, it was tasty, juicy and I didn’t feel guilty while eating it. Double win!

Here is the super simple recipe and some pics to go with it. Enjoy!

Ingredients 

1 cup of Linwood’s Ground Flax mixture

1 Tablespoon coarse sea salt

1Teaspoon ground pepper
