NO PARMESAN CHICKEN!

Yes, there is a breaded chicken patty underneath the sauce!

I know this title is somewhat confusing, but, we don’t eat Parmesan Cheese because of the high amount of FGA’s (Free Glutamic Acids or MSG) in it.  All aged cheeses have some FGA in them from the aging process so we seldom eat cheese and if we do it’s very little.  So, we named this recipe No Parmesan Chicken and actually I don’t miss the Parmesan!  The sauce we use is our Less Tomato Spaghetti Sauce.  We don’t do well with a lot of tomatoes, especially cooked tomatoes because they as well have naturally occurring GA (Glutamic Acid).  When cooked these amino acids begin to break down into FGA.  Check out my post on MSG – MSG 101.

Recipe Serves 2

Heat water for Spaghetti Noodles.  We use Tinkyada Brown Rice Noodles.  For 2 people 2- 1 inch diameter bunches of noodles is enough.

I cook noodles for about 15 minutes with a little Organic EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) added to the water.

Heat Olive oil and butter – 2 Tbsp. each – in large skillet.  Rinse 2 thin-sliced free-range chicken breasts (We buy the free range chicken breasts already sliced at Wal-Mart) and dip in about 2 Tbsp. Milk (rice milk works great) with 1 organic egg mixed together.

In a pie plate, add about 1/4 cup Almond Flour & 2 Tbsp. Oat Bran with sea salt and a little garlic and onion powder added.  Dredge breasts in flour mixture and put in heated skillet with the EVOO and butter.

In another large skillet heat 2 Tbsp. EVOO.  Add 1 large clove minced garlic, 1/4 cup diced onion, 1 cup chopped mushrooms.  Saute until tender.

Add 2 teaspoons Tapioca flour (or your choice thickener) to this mixture to slightly thicken.  Stir, then add 1/2 cup Muir Glen Organic Tomato Puree* and 2/3 cup water.  Also, add 7 drops liquid stevia, and a little garlic, onion powder and salt to taste.  Cook gently.  About 5-10 minutes. Don’t overcook too long which can produce FGA (MSG).

Cook Chicken Breasts until golden brown on both sides.

When noodles and sauce are done, put noodles on plates, top with chicken and spoon sauce over all.  I top mine with Italian Seasoning.  You can top with Mozzarella Cheese.  Usually we don’t and it’s delicious without it! Serve with salad, Enjoy!

*I just wanted to add a note about the Muir Glen Tomato Puree.  The ingredients do list citric acid which can contain FGA, but we haven’t had any reactions from this brand of tomatoes.  I have tried other name brands as well as Wal-Mart’s brand that did not include citric acid as an ingredient on the label, and still had reactions from all of them.
