Instead of batter-dipped, deep-fried nuggets, we coat chicken tenders in a seasoned almond flour crust and then oven-fry them to perfection. It is a low sodium, low carbohydrate, low calorie and diabetic appropriate recipe.

Nutritional Benefits:-Almonds contain great amount of nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, healthy fats, protein and fiber. Almonds help in reducing hunger by reducing the overall calorie intake.Chicken tenders are an excellent source of selenium, niacin, vitamin B6, and phosphorus.They help in building muscle and strengthening bones.


olive oil cooking spray
10 g almond flour
1½ teaspoons paprika
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large egg white
40g chicken tenders


Preheat oven to 475°F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Set a wire rack on the baking sheet and coat it with cooking spray.
Place almond flour, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor; process until the paprika is mixed throughout, about 1 minute.
With the motor running, drizzle in oil; process until combined. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish. Whisk egg white in a second shallow dish.
Add chicken tenders and turn to coat. Transfer each tender to the almond mixture; turn to coat evenly
Place the tenders on the prepared rack and coat with cooking spray; turn and spray the other side. Bake the chicken fingers until golden brown, crispy and no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.
Over to you:-Chicken tenders, virtually fat-free, are a strip of rib meat typically found attached to the underside of the chicken breast, but they can also be purchased separately. Tenders are perfect for quick stir-fries, chicken satay or kid-friendly breaded “chicken fingers.”
