Healthy Chicken Mix
While frying chicken may taste good, it’s packed with fat, oils and calories. By baking the chicken in the mixture of these low-carb flours it cuts the calorie count in half and has 80% less fat, but still tastes delicious. Serve with a side of vegetables and a salad for a balanced and healthy meal.
