Caraway seeds with their anise-like aroma are often overlooked in the kitchen… unfortunately! These little wonder seeds are packed with a unique fragrant flavor… not to mention the countless health benefits! Caraway seeds are notorious for combatting against indigestion by acting in the body as a carminative— which is a substance that prevents the formation of gas in the gastrointestinal tract. For years, they’ve been used as a natural substance in herbal cooking and in Ayurvedic medicine. Give this delicious little seed a whirl with this simple yet tasty recipe!
Ginger-Caraway-Coconut Crispy Baked Chicken Breasts
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
2 egg whites
1 lime, juiced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together egg whites and lime juice. Coat chicken breasts fully in the egg-lime mixture. Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine oats, coconut flakes, ginger, and caraway seeds until coarsely ground. Transfer to a bowl, and dredge the chicken breasts in the mixture. Arrange on a baking sheet, and bake for 20-30 minutes (depending on the size of the chicken breasts) until the chicken is no longer pink. Enjoy!
