Italian “Paleo Breaded” Chicken Cutlets with Paleo Bread™

Italian “Paleo Breaded” Organic Chicken Cutlets


 4 to 5 chicken cutlets, preferably organic and free range

1 egg, organic and cage free

2 tablespoons light cream (or unsweetened almond milk)

3 slices Almond Paleo Bread, toasted until crisp

1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Few good grinds of black pepper

Few good shakes cayenne pepper, optional

3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt

2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil (for sautéing)


In a small food processor, pulverize the 3 pieces of toasted Almond Paleo Bread until they become bread crumbs; place bread crumbs into a shallow bowl.  Add all the seasonings to the bread crumbs and mix together well.  In a separate medium bowl, beat egg with cream or almond milk and add a pinch of salt and dash of pepper. 

Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high and add a tablespoon or two of oil.

Dip the chicken cutlets, one at a time into the egg mixture and let excess drip off.  Place moistened cutlets one at a time into the seasoned bread crumbs, pressing lightly to coat well on both sides; repeating until all cutlets have been breaded.  As the cutlets are breaded, add them to the oil coated skillet and cook about 3-5 minutes or until well browned.  Flip and repeat cooking and browning on the other side; cook until done and juices run clear. 


This recipe uses Almond Paleo Bread which boasts 9 grams of protein per slice and is totally grain and dairy free.  The net carb count for each slice is 1 carb.  Almond flour is high in protein, manganese, potassium, copper, and vitamin E, as well as healthy monounsaturated fats.  These “breaded” cutlets are a perfect way to add some variety to your low carb, gluten or grain free diet as well as a tasty, healthier alternative for children to eat than typical chicken nuggets.  They are something the whole family can enjoy.
