Chicken 3 ways

Here are 3 different ways to dress up gluten free, breaded chicken cutlets.

To make the cutlets, you will need the following:

2 1/4 lbs of chicken
1/2 C almond flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 pinches of cayenne powder
1/4 tsp coriander

Pound out chicken breast until flat and separate into 6, 6 oz pieces. Wash chicken but leave it a little wet to help with dredging. Combine dry ingredients into a large bowl and add chicken. You can also add a little bit of ground flax meal into the dry ingredients, if you want to add some additional fiber. Toss chicken to coat with the dry ingredients.

Over high heat, in a large, cast iron pan add 2 Tbl of olive, vegetable or canola oil and sear the chicken breast. Once cooked, deglaze the pan with 1 C marsala wine and reduce heat to medium.   When wine has cooked down, 1-2 minutes, separate chicken into 3 skillets 2 pieces in each.
