Problems with digesting fats which occur in people with Candida overgrowth exclude deep fried products from their diets. But this doesn’t mean you have togive up on them completely – many of them can be prepared “dry” in an oven 🙂
For this chicken a la KFC you’ll need:
– chicken fillets
– olive oil
– natural corn flakes
– spelt (or other) flour
– your favorite spices – for me it’s salt, dried garlic, sweet and hot pepper and a pinch of curry
1. Cut the fillets into bits – not too big, so that they will bake thoroughly under the coating, but not too small, so that they don’t dry out.
2. Make a marinade out of the olive oil and spices, mix it with the meat and leave in the fridge for a while – preferably overnight, as this will make the chicken absorb the spices.
3. Prepare three dishes – one for flour, one for eggs, mixed with a fork and one for crumbled cornflakes.
4. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spray it with olive oil.
5. Coat the chicken in flour, eggs and cornflakes and place onto the tray. Spray with olive oil.
6. Bake in 180C [350F] without fan assistance until the cornflakes turn golden and the meat is baked – depending on the thickness of the bits it will take from fifteen minutes to half an hour. It’s best to check the meat before taking the tray out by cutting one bit in half to see if the meat is baked.
Chicken prepared this way is just as tasty and crunchy, but not soaked in oil, which makes it much healthier and easier to digest. Because the cornflakes provide carbohydrates, it will make for a complete meal with just vegetables – if the proportions are similar to those in the pictures, or if a portion of the vegetables is substituted with an alkaline grain (millet or buckwheat groats, quinoa), the meal doesn’t require supplementation. If a portion of the vegetables is substituted with an acidogenic grain, the meal will require supplementing half a tablet of vitamin B6 (25mg).
