Easy Baked Almond Meal Chicken Fingers
Adapted from AllRecipes.com
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, sliced into chicken tenders
3/4 cup almond meal/flour
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1 teaspoon ground garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Directions: Using a small paper bag or Ziploc bag, shake seasoning and almond meal together. Place chicken tenders in bag and shake until well coated (I recommend only placing 1-2 chicken tenders at a time in bag). Place the coated chicken on a greased baking sheet. For best results, use a metal cookie rack stacked on top of a cookie sheet to elevate chicken for even cooking. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Tip: If you like crispier chicken, spray cooking spray on each piece of chicken before placing in the oven.
