Healthy chicken schnitzel made with almond flour instead of breadcrumbs and baked in the oven to perfection! Ready in less than 35 minutes. Gluten free, paleo and low-carb.
Preheat oven to 400F / 200C degrees . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with a bit of oil.
Prepare three large bowls / stations: one with cornstarch, one with beaten eggs, and one with almond flour, oregano, salt, paprika, lemon zest mixed together.
Place all breasts in cornstarch and toss until they're all well covered.
Wash your hands between each breast so the mixture doesn’t clump.
Place coated breast on prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remain breasts.
Bake for 15 minutes on the middle rack of your oven, then move the baking sheet closer to the grid and broil for 5-8 minutes (depending on your oven) or until it's lightly golden.
It won't get as golden as a fried chicken schnitzel, it's normal.
Remove from the oven and serve with a couple of lemon wedges and parsley.
Traditionally, schnitzel is served along potatoes. Try them with:
