Easy Cheesy Chicken Bake (sugar free • gluten free • low carb • gaps)


This recipe comes out moist and flavorful every time. The coconut flour used to bread the chicken adds a great flavor and doesn't dry things out.

First I mix together my coconut flour, freshly grated colby cheese, freshly grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder and onion powder.


In another bowl I melt butter and add in garlic powder, sea salt and black pepper. I pound out my chicken breasts, salt and pepper them, dip them in the butter, and then into my coconut flour mixture. I line them up in a glass baking dish.


I bake them in the oven for 35 minutes.


I top each one with more freshly grated colby cheese and then place back in the oven for another 10 minutes.


They finish up looking toasty around the edges with the cheese all melty and gooey. Lots of things are better with melty gooey cheese on top. Atleast in my opinion.

I heard there is some dairy-free, soy-free cheese at Whole Foods. Maybe I could try that so L could eat this. I think he'd LOVE it.

Looks super kid friendly. BTW I stopped in from Real Food Wednesdays. Also, I think you should really work towards being the goal of an at home mom. If you don't really work at it, you will only wish for it. It is worth the sacrifices in material goods!

I'd love to stay home full time "Ubermom", material things aren't keeping me from it, its more like keeping our electric on, or gas, clothes for the kiddo and food on the table. That's why my hubby is going to school so that hopefully when he graduates and gets a new job we can afford for me to stay home. Right now my income is too important.
