It is hard to come up with new recipes that are easy to put together on a busy weeknight. I found this Crispy Balsamic Chicken Recipe and adapted it a little to suit us. Namely we used Gluten Free Italian breadcrumbs and I used eggs instead of egg whites. So easy and so good! I can’t tell you how delicious it was and I am so glad I doubled the recipe and made four chicken breasts because they were even good the next day, not as crispy when I heated them up but just as tasty. For sides we had broccoli, our old standby, and riced cauliflower which we just discovered in the freezer section of Trader Joe’s – LOVE! – we just sprinkled it with salt, pepper and chopped parsley after heating it up in the microwave. Next time, I want to make this Cauliflower Fried Rice and I bet it would work for this recipe too! Have you tried it? If so, please share how you prepare it.
