“Fried” Chicken Tenders {Whole30} {Paleo}

When I saw this recipe on HappyWifeStyle’s instagram page, I was hesitant.  Surely fried chicken cannot be made with Whole30 compliant ingredients right??  WRONG.  This is knock your socks off good!  And SO easy.  I’ve made a few minor modifications shown below.  Enjoy!!

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees
  2. Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 T olive oil.
  3. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients. In another small bowl, beat eggs.
  4. Dip each chicken tender in the egg and then coat with the almond mixture. Lay on baking sheet.
  5. When all of the chicken tenders are coated and on the baking sheet, drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Flip and bake for another 25 minutes. Broil for 2 minutes on high to crisp.
