Grain-Free Baked Almond Chicken Fingers

Easy Baked Almond Meal Chicken Fingers

Ingredients

  • 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

1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2

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.

3

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.

4

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

    Mmmmm!! I have been looking for recipes for my daughter who will be a year old next month. She loves hand held food and I don’t like the idea of buying her frozen tenders nor from a restaurant. God only knows what really goes into them. *shudder*

    Thanks Lina!!

    These sound fantastic, but for tonight I’m going to do the $5 Friday chicken at Safeway… 100° in California (no air conditioning) is just not the time to be turning the oven on. I’ll save the recipe! 😃

      Heather I feel your misery!!! 91 where I am, no oven usage!

      96 here in the Bay. I am not even using my wax melt to have the house smell good because it’s so hot. I’m thinking of just having ice cream for dinner 😉

    just this morning my chiropractor suggested gluten-free meals to see if this will help with my muscles aches. I will definitely try this recipe, seems pretty easy to make and looks delicious!

      @dropofrain, my daughter has a form of rheumatoid arthritis and is completely grain free and low starch. This diet is recommended to reduce inflammation and has helped so much with back pain. She’s only 22.

      Thank you Collin and Lina!

    I make these all of the time and they are delicious. Amazon has the best deal on almond flour, since it can be pricey.

  5. terri

    Looks great..thanks!

  6. Vanessa

    Would anyone know if these will reheat well if I make a big batch and use leftovers next day?

    • Jenn

      Yes they reheat pretty well

  7. Tera B

    Just tried these! Even better than I thought they would be–so good! Thanks so much, Lina.
