Almond crusted chicken fingers and cauliflower mash.

Grade: A

This meal went over very well. We all loved it. My 7 year old destroyed 3 pieces of chicken and my 12 year old said, "wow, this is really good." They even loved the cauliflower mash.

Important notes: The almond crusted chicken must be seasoned properly. Add salt, pepper and other seasonings to your almond flour.

You also want to pan fry the chicken until the crust is a dark brown. It tastes really good when the crust is dark and rich.

It is best to puree the cauliflower, as mashing it will leave lumps. A smooth texture makes this more pleasing.

Almond Crusted Chicken

--Place your almond flour in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and any other seasonings you enjoy.
--In a second bowl, whisk 3 eggs.

Place a 1/4 to 1/8 inch on olive oil in a frying pan. You want this very hot, so the chicken sizzles when it hits the pan.

Coat the chicken fingers in almond flour, then egg, the a second time in the almond flour. Drop in the pan and cook for several minutes on both sides. the point is to achieve a golden brown batter color, and not to cook the chicken completely through.

Have your over preheated to 350. Remove seared chicken and place into a baking pan. Back for about 15 minutes. If you are cooking thicker pieces of chicken you may need to cook it longer.

Pull from the over and allow the chicken to rest for several minutes before cutting.

Cauliflower Mash

Boil 2 bags of frozen cauliflower (or one fresh head) until very soft. Drain excess water. Add a huge dollop of sour cream and 1/4 stick of butter. Also add salt, pepper, garlic and chives to taste. Mash or puree until creamy.

Add 1 cup of your favorite cheese, mix well and serve.
