Free Healthy Recipe - Herb Crusted Chicken Fillet with Creamed Spinach

Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

The essential pantry item for this dish is a packet of oatcakes - the oatcake is a traditional Scottish savoury biscuit delicious with cheese. Compared to most savoury crackers and bread they have a low GI, and ground make a healthier alternative to breadcrumbs to use as a crust for chicken or fish.
Serve the chicken with creamed spinach (see recipe link to the right).

4 oatcakes crushed
2 tbsp sage, chopped finely
2 tbsp thyme, chopped finely
2 tbsp parsley, chopped finely
1 tsp lemon zest, grated
2 tbsp olive oil

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Place the oatcakes, herbs and lemon zest in a food processor and add the olive oil to make a thick paste.
Cut incisions across the chicken breast and spread the herb mix over each breast. Transfer the breasts to a baking sheet lined with baking paper and cook for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.

Note: Oatcakes are available form good delis, health food stores or, you can make your own, using the recipe listed on The Food Coach website.
