In place of bread crumbs, this crusted chicken recipe from the Gimme Some Oven blog uses hemp seeds for an options that's naturally gluten-free and extremely high in protein.

What goes into making the crust includes hemp seeds, ground almonds, plus a few spices like garlic powder, paprika and cayenne for flavor. Although there's no flour in the recipe, the almond meal makes a great substitute. To bind this healthy hemp seed coating to the chicken strips, like usual, the recipe calls for a bowl of whisked eggs to dip the chicken strips into. From there, the process is just like any other coated chicken recipe, which involves baking the chicken in the oven to adhere the coating to the chicken and make sure that it gets nice and crispy.
