Crispy baked chicken recipe

Diabetic | Heart Healthy
Serves 8

Try this healthy alternative to fried chicken. This easy recipe pairs the health benefits of walnuts with lean chicken for a crunchy comfort food packed with immune-boosting nutrients.


  • 8 chicken breast boneless and skinless (3 oz. each)
  • ½ cup flour seasoned with pepper
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1½ cups finely ground walnut pieces


Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat chicken with flour and then dip each breast in buttermilk. Coat each chicken breast with walnuts.

Heat non-stick pan on medium and spray it with vegetable oil. Place chicken in pan and cook on each side for 2 to 3 minutes regulating the heat to avoid burning walnut crust.

Transfer chicken to oven to bake thoroughly, about 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast registers 165°F. To serve, slice each chicken breast diagonally into 4 pieces.
