  • 2 Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Breasts
  • 1/4 cup Oil
  • 1 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Slice the Chicken into small nugget-sized pieces.
  • Pour the Grapeseed Oil into a medium-sized mixing bowl, and toss the cut chicken pieces in the oil. In a separate small mixing bowl whisk the Bread Crumbs, Ground Flaxseed, Parmesan Cheese and Spices together.
  • Piece by piece, roll the coated chicken into the bread crumb mixture and lay on a rimmed baking sheet. Place in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes. Serve with favorite dipping sauce.


You can use whatever bread crumb version you like, but I use Ian’s Organic Brown Rice Breadcrumbs, which have a similar texture to panko crumbs. I found them at my local grocery store, but here's a gluten-free version that will work too.
If you make a large enough batch for the week make sure to toast them in the oven (or toaster oven) to reheat them instead of using the microwave. The crumbs will soften during fridge storage, but you can crisp them back up in the oven.
