Low-Carb Bento: Caesar Salad & Almond Schnitzel


Another lunch for my low-carb bento series: creamy caesar salad with chicken schnitzel coated with almond meal. Almond meal is a great alternative to the usual flour and breadcrumbs coating. It even tastes really good! The only drawback is, it can be quite crumbly, so you have to be careful when you pan-fry the schnitzel.

Almond Chicken Schnitzel

2 Servings

  • 2 chicken breast fillets, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce
  • almond meal
  • oil for pan-frying

Mix the chicken with egg and oyster sauce. Coat the chicken pieces with almond meal. Pan-fry until both sides are golden brown. Set aside and keep warm in the oven.

Easy Caesar Salad

2 Servings

  • 2 heads of romaine lettuce
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 hard boiled egg, sliced
  • Caesar Salad dressing
  • coarsely ground black pepper, to taste
  • grated parmesan cheese, to taste
  • chopped green onions for garnish
Tear the romaine lettuce into 3 cm lengths and place in a bowl. Add cherry tomatoes and your favourite Caesar salad dressing. Mix well. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese, pepper, green onions and garnish with slices of hard boiled egg. Arrange the almond schnitzel nuggets on top of the salad. Serve.
