Heart Healthy Crispy Baked Chicken Recipe
Preheat oven to 350°. Coat chicken with flour and then dip each breast in buttermilk. Coat each chicken breast with walnuts.
Heat non-stick pan on medium and spray it with vegetable oil. Place chicken in pan and cook on each side for 2 to 3 minutes regulating the heat to avoid burning walnut crust.
Transfer chicken to oven to bake thoroughly, approximately 20 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast registers 165°. Remove from pan when cooked. Slice each chicken breast diagonally into 4 pieces. Serve hot.
