Quick , Easy, Healthy Almond Baked Chicken
Updated: 16 hours ago
This is one of my favourite weeknight recipes. It's from a great cook book called "Delicious Detox" by a Naturopath named Carol Morley. It's gluten free, dairy, soy, corn and sugar free. It's simple to make and you can whip it together on a rushed Wednesday night for the whole family. The chicken and almonds pack a ton of protein and any left overs taste fantastic on a salad for tomorrows lunch. I hope you enjoy this addition to your weekly dinners as much as my family does!
