Whole30 chicken tenders - a quick paleo dinner that will get you through the Whole 30 challenge!

The Whole30 recipe testing has begun!! Starting a Whole30 in January means the planning must start now!  Everything I have read says that planning ahead is the most important thing to be successful.  I also need to start slowly eating whole30 approved stuff in between all of the sugary stuff I can’t seem to keep my hands off right now.  My sister just had a fabulous birthday party last weekend and we had lots of yummy treats and wine!  It’s occasions like that where I love to enjoy myself and not feel guilty about having a brownie.  Those sweets just make me eat even better the next day and become what balance is all about.  For these tasty tenders I looked to my pantry.  I had almond meal and coconut flour on hand and saw breading written all over it!  I am thinking this would also be a great breading on a gluten-free chicken Parmesan.  There are infinite options really!

Whole30 Chicken Tenders


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. chicken tenders
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/21 teaspoon salt (depending on how salty you like things)
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Instructions

  1. In a shallow bowl combine almond meal, coconut flour, garlic powder, salt, pepper & smoked paprika. Liberally sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken tenders. In a small bowl scramble up 1 egg. Dip the chicken tenders in the egg, then roll them around in the breading mixture. Press the mixture all over the chicken and then shake off the excess. Place a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Once oil is hot, add a few tenders and cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Continue with the rest of the tenders and serve with some paleo ketchup!
