I recently wrote about a few alternative flours that I am experimenting with. Flours like almond, black bean, and rice make it possible to make gluten free baked goods. Some are suitable for making baked goods that meet the requirements of a Paleo or Primal diet. However, you don't need to be eating a special diet to enjoy the benefits alternative flours offer. They add a whole new dimension in creative cooking allowing you to bring a little pizazz to your family favourites,
Almond flour adds a light, nutty flavoured crust to the stuffed chicken breasts. The almond flour browns nicely. It adds a little extra protein as well. These delicious bundles of yummy delight are sure to please!
Method: Pound out boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Place a single layer of washed spinach leaves over top of each prepared chicken breast. Place sliced or shredded cheese on top of the spinach. Carefully roll the chicken breast jelly roll style. Secure with wooden toothpick if desired. Place the prepared stuffed chicken breast into a bowl of almond flour. Pat the almond flour around the chicken breast to coat evenly. Place the coated chicken breast onto a Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350°F until golden brown and cooked through, about 40 minutes.
