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)

  • 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.

Continue with the rest of the tenders and serve with some paleo ketchup!
