You know it’s a home run recipe when both people eat in complete silence except for the occasional ‘mmmm…’  Either that or we were just WAY too hungry to slow down. But honestly, this is a home run recipe.

I love when I’m recipe testing and the dish turns out so good that I feel the need to share it on the blog immediately. That is exactly what happened on Saturday! As soon as this sun dried tomato crusted chicken came out of the oven, I knew we were in for a treat.

The chicken requires only a few ingredients:

  1. Egg
  2. Simple Mills Sun Dried Tomato Crackers
  3. Almond Flour

You don’t have to use Simple Mills crackers for the breading but I highly recommend it. I first discovered Simple Mills last November and have been hooked ever since. In addition to the fact that they are a local Chicago-based company, their ingredients are on point. These crackers include a Nut and Seed Flour Blend (Almonds, Sunflower Seeds, Flax), Tapioca, Cassava, Organic Sunflower Oil, Sun-dried Tomatoes, Organic Onion, Organic Basil, Organic Garlic, Sea Salt, Organic Oregano, Organic Pepper, Rosemary Extract (For Freshness).

Are you kidding me?! So simple, so clean, and so good. 

So while you don’t need to use Simple Mills crackers, just do yourself a favor and do it.

In addition to the crackers, you will need some fresh green beans, olive oil, and salt and pepper to finish this sheet pan dinner.

I love love love green beans. I remember being a kid and picking green beans from my mom’s garden for dinner in the summer. I’m pretty sure for every 3 beans that went towards dinner, another one went straight into my mouth. And I would do that all summer long.

My mom would normally steam them but I love a quick roast in the oven; it keeps them crisp and fresh!

    My fam LOVED Simple Mills Crackers; I’m so thankful that God mercifully made so many different kinds of foods so we can still make things like crusted chicken and have them be gluten free. Also, you got the crusting SO even; I’m amazed at your skillzz Ellie!

    This looks delish! I’m in a pinch for dinner tonight and may not have a chance to grab those crackers. I have some rice crackers at home and a jar of sun dried tomatoes…do you think it would work if I used those with a few jarred ones? Been loving your recipes!

      Thanks Adrienne! I don’t think I would use the jarred ones… all of the flavoring comes from these crackers – which are a dry good – and I don’t know how well the coating will stick if you add something wet or oily to it. You could always use your rice crackers and a bunch of other spices – basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary. Let me know what you think!
