Baked Chicken Mexican Style LOW CARB

[ Edited ]
 This will be tonight's dinner, with adjustments (less Panko, for one).

 

Baked Chicken Mexican Style

QVC Recipe Swap | by Beebee2 on Dec. 14, 2010

 

1 egg

2 Tablespoons bottled green chili salsa or taco sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups plain Panko bread crumbs

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 ½ teaspoons garlic salt

½ teaspoon ground oregano

6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup butter

4-6 cups shredded iceberg lettuce

1 cup sour cream

6 Tablespoons thinly sliced green onion

1 ½ dozen cherry tomatoes

1 - 2 limes cut into wedges

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced

 

In a shallow pan beat together egg, salsa and salt. In another shallow pan combine breadcrumbs, chili powder, cumin, garlic salt and oregano. Dip each chicken piece into egg mixture to coat, then dip into crumb mixture; set aside.

 

Place butter in a large, shallow roasting or broiler pan in the oven while it is preheating to 375º. As soon as butter is melted, remove pan from oven and put in chicken pieces, turning to coat. Bake, uncovered, until chicken is done, about 35 minutes.

 

To serve, place chicken on a bed of shredded lettuce. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream, green onion, cherry tomatoes, lime wedges and avocado. Pass extra sour cream and salsa.

 

Makes 6 servings.

@IamMrsG Thank you!  Yum!  Have you made this?  I will remove the salt & use garlic powder instead of garlic salt, as hubby has to watch sodium, this is my kind of dinner

@AnnMarie-1   I only post what we call "tried 'n true" recipes.  This particular one has been a favorite on our table for nearly six years now.  I hope you and yours will enjoy it, too.

I just read about your husband IamMrsG, sorry to hear that, I am glad you are being proactive, not everyone does that with that diagnosis!...I know as I have people on mine & hubbys side not watching their diets at all...getting old is not for the weak for sure, be well!

Re: Baked Chicken Mexican Style LOW CARB

Sounds good, but I would skip the bread crumbs if you really want it to be low carb. Keep in mind that the tomatoes will add carbs, too.

Re: Baked Chicken Mexican Style LOW CARB

Low carb doesn't necessarily mean healthy.  Salt - butter - sour cream.  I'd sure make adjustments to this recipe

@IamMrsG

@Beebee2

 

I just made this last weekend!  It was fabulous!

 

Thank you both!

 

I would never have thought to 'salsa' up my egg dip!  I loved the mexican flavors in the Panko!

 

Perfect over that salad!

 

Loved everything about it!  Thanks for posting and sharing!
