  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds chicken tenders*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup fine almond flour

  • Place breaded chicken on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Continue process until all of the chicken is breaded and on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in oven until chicken is browned and cooked through, 20-25 minutes.

I serve these babies with an easy homemade paleo ranch for the ultimate dipping, but you can choose whatever sauces your heart desires. Healthy honey mustard? A homemade BBQ sauce? TIME TO GET WILD. Oh and these three dipping sauces are the absolute best and would be so perfect! I also really like this Whole30 ketchup.
