What you will need:
 
1- 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast

 

1/3 cup almond meal/flour
3 tbsp. sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Dash of basil
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp. minced garlic, 1 clove
16 asparagus spears
1 large egg white
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Once the pan has heated, add the garlic and asparagus and cook until the asparagus brightens in color- approximately 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Slice the chicken breast down the middle and then into four pieces.  Using a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast to thin in out enough to wrap around four asparagus spears. 
Place the egg white into one bowl and the coconut, almond meal, and garlic powder into a second bowl. Dip each side of a chicken breast into the egg white, dredge both sides through the almond mixture, and lay flat on a plate. Place four asparagus spears onto the edge of the chicken and roll. You can use a toothpick to hold it shut if need be. Continue this process with the remaining chicken breasts. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non-stick spray and place each chicken roll evenly apart. Season with basil, salt, and pepper, to taste. Bake for 23-25 minutes and enjoy!

    I made this tonight and it was AMAZINGGGGG!!!! I had to substitute the almond meal with whole wheat breadcrumbs bc I didn’t have time to go to the store. SO SO good! Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    I made this tonight and LOVED it!! I had to substitute the almond meal for whole wheat bread crumbs.. Which might have changed the flavor a little… But still amazing! Thanks for sharing! :). I will def be making this again in the near future!

    So, I had this idea. Make the meal and show pictures of making the food and then how it turned out — ideally, what it looked like on the plate. However, as soon as I got the chicken out of the oven and on plates, it vanished! My family grabbed their dishes and scarfed it down without giving me the chance to show you how well it turned out!! Oh well, better luck next time!!

    Sincerely,
    Another successful night at dinner
