This was dinner last night. I have not figured out the carb count yet. But I can't imagine it can be too high.
Take 3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves and slice them in half and pound thin. Take 2 shallow bowls and in one mix 1/2 cup coconut flour, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1 TBS. ea. of cumin and chili powder, about a tsp. (or more) of garlic and onion powder, salt (I just shook it in, about a tsp.), and a couple shakes of cajun seasoning. In the other bowl add 3 eggs and beat well.
Dip each piece of meat first in the egg mix, then in the flour mix and place on a cookie sheet until you are finished, meanwhile heating a large skillet (I used stainless steel) with the bottom covered with oil. When you're ready, drop the chicken (carefully) into the pan and fry about 3 minutes on each side. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake in the 350 degree F. oven, covered with aluminum foil for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile shred some cauliflower to make cauli-rice in your food processor. In a frying pan melt some butter, place 1/2 cup cauli-rice per serving and 1 TBS. salsa per serving, onion powder and garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, some sliced black olives, and stir and fry, just until hot. Serve together.
Another top rated meal for my family. They had real spanish rice though and I had the cauli-rice. Today I had a cold left over breast chopped on top of cold cauli-rice salad. It was great! Hope you try it and enjoy it.
