For the most part we try to eat meat pretty sparingly. We have nothing against meat we simply feel better when we don’t eat quite as much of it and pack our plates with veggies instead. However, as the weather gets colder we really start to crave some chicken from time to time. This Baked Chicken Sandwich totally hits the spot! Put some KFC Copycat Coleslaw, Last Minute Potato Salad or Perfect Protein Veggie Salad on the side and you have a gorgeous meal!
When we first started Eating Clean we may or may not (totally did) have had cravings for just one more greasy, fried chicken sandwich. We made up this recipe and it completely fixed the craving! We actually like our version even better because it’s completely clean and doesn’t leave us with that heavy, icky feeling when we are done.
Baked Chicken Sandwich with Poppyseed Honey Mustard Sauce
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (or Gluten Free Flour)
- 1 Tbs. Real Salt
- 2 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. cayenne
- 1 Tbs. Italian seasoning (optional)
- ½ tsp. onion powder
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- 4 chicken breasts
- 2 cups buttermilk
- avocado oil for cookie sheet
- desired sandwich toppings (we like a fresh tomato, lettuce and red onion slices)
Drizzle avocado oil on a cookie sheet (this is our favorite because it browns the chicken so wonderfully). Mix all the dry ingredients together in one bowl. This is your chicken seasoning. Pour your buttermilk into another bowl. With a very sharp knife cut the chicken into sandwich sized pieces. Dip the chicken in the seasoning, then into the buttermilk and then back into the seasoning. Make sure to coat each piece well. Place on the cookie sheet. Bake at 425º until fully cooked, be sure to flip over after about 10 minutes. This usually takes between 20-30 minutes depending on how thick your chicken is.
Poppyseed Honey Mustard Sauce:
Mix all ingredients together and spread over the chicken or the bun.
Assemble your sandwich (Quick Rolls or Do Everything Dough both make absolutely perfect buns) and spread this delicious sauce over the chicken or the bun. For a healthy desert add some Raw Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies or some Fantastic Fig Bars. Enjoy!
