Crunchy (Yet Healthy) Chicken

You may have hundreds of recipes for chicken — but we bet you haven’t got this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Chicken Crusted with Almond and Flax. The object here is to make chicken with a crunchy texture that comes from cancer-fighting ingredients.

In addition to fiber, crushed almonds provide vitamin E. Flaxseed is a source of omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3s in plant foods such as flaxseed and walnuts are slightly different from the omega-3s found in cold-water fish. But both are being studied for potential cancer-preventive action.

Serve this entree with plenty of delicious vegetables, like Tri-Colored Peppers with Herbs and Stir-fried Kale with Slivered Carrots from our brochure Veggies in the New American Plate series. Add a yummy whole grain, like quinoa, barley or brown rice and you’ll have a delicious, cancer-fighting meal.
