Malibu Chicken
with roasted broccoli

Active: 40 min Total: 40 min

This dish came in as a request from several community members and once we started testing it, we could see why! The paleo version of the chicken is lightly breaded with almond meal and served with sliced ham on top. The honey mustard sauce served on the side makes the dish.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 350C / 177F.
  2. Line a sheet pan with foil or brush it with some oil to prevent sticking. (Note: The sheet pan will need to hold both the chicken and broccoli. If it won’t easily fit on one, prepare a second pan.)
  3. Toss broccoli and garlic with oil. Season with some salt and pepper. Spread out on one half of the sheet pan.
  4. Bread chicken by coating each piece in egg yolk / water mixture and then in almond meal mixture. Spread out on second half of the sheet pan.
  5. Bake chicken and broccoli until chicken is cooked through and broccoli is tender, 20 to 25 minutes, stirring broccoli with a spatula halfway through cooking. (Note: If broccoli finishes cooking before chicken, transfer it to a serving dish and return chicken to the oven.)
  6. Remove pan from the oven and turn on the oven’s broiler. Transfer broccoli to a serving dish, leaving chicken on the sheet pan.
  7. Top (or wrap, if your slices of ham are large) each piece of chicken with a slice of ham. Place chicken under the broiler just until ham is warmed through and golden brown on the edges, 1 to 2 minutes.
  8. Serve chicken with honey mustard and broccoli on the side. Enjoy!

Loved how little prep there was, and such a yummy meal too! I would double the broccoli and the sauce next time.

Chicken was good. Loved the roasted broccoli. Sauce was ok, not my favorite sauce.

Chicken was very good and moist! I used white cheddar cheese, instead of swiss cheese for the topping.
