  • 3 1/2 oz. fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 tbsp mayo


  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Cut the chicken breasts into 1 1/2 inch chunks. Mix the flour wheat germ, cumin, coriander, and pepper to taste in a bowl, then divide in half and put on 2 separate plates. Put the beaten egg on a third plate.

  2. Pour the oil into a baking sheet with a rim and heat in the oven. Roll the chicken pieces in one plate of flour, shake to remove any excess, then roll in the egg and in the second plate of flour, again shaking off any excess flour.
