Carb Smart Almond Chicken

with Green Veggies and Lemony Mayo

This is not your nonna's fried cutlet! Inspired by the restaurant classic, tender chicken is topped with a wholesome crust, and we've swapped breadcrumbs out for almonds to keep those carbs low. A tumble of garlicky green veggies is always a good idea.

Large Non-Stick Pan
Small Bowl
Measuring Spoons
Baking Sheet


Toast almonds
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat.
  • When hot, add almonds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until golden, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!)
  • Transfer to a plate to cool.
  • While toasted almonds cool, halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half-moons.
  • Cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces.
  • Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges.
  • Add half the lemon zest, 1 tsp (2 tsp) lemon juice and 3 tbsp (6 tbsp) mayo to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.
Make topping and prep chicken
  • Finely chop toasted almonds.
  • Add toasted almonds, Dijon, remaining lemon zest and remaining mayo to another small bowl. Season with pepper, then stir to combine. 
  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels on a separate cutting board.
  • Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving 1/2 inch intact on the other end.
  • Open up chicken like a book. Season with pepper and half the garlic salt.
Cook chicken
  • Reheat the same pan (from step 1) over medium-high. 
  • When the pan is hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then chicken. Sear until golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. 
  • Transfer to an unlined baking sheet. Spread Parmesan-almond topping onto chicken. 
  • Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 8-10 min.** 
Cook veggies
  • While chicken roasts, reheat the same pan over medium.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then broccoli, zucchini and 2 tbsp water. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook veggies in 2 batches for 4 ppl, using 1 tbsp oil and 2 tbsp water per batch!)
  • Season with pepper and remaining garlic salt.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp, 5-6 min.
Finish and serve
  • Thinly slice chicken.
  • Divide chicken and veggies between plates.
  • Serve lemony mayo on the side for dipping.
  • Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
