ALMOND CRUMBED CHICKEN SCHNITZEL
COOKBOOK: Moro Cookbook
Simple and super easy! I made it as a light lunch and it was very successful! I do like chicken tenders, they’re small portions and a very soft meat. Great for kids! Crumbing with almond meal was a great way to introduce a different method and one that I truly loved.
Almond meal is rich in vitamin E and other antioxidants which helps reduce the risk of serious health conditions such as heart disease, strokes, diabetes and cancer.
In no time you’ll have lunch ready for the family!
