Yield:4-6 servings 1x
2 chicken breasts sliced evenly into small 2-3 inch pieces long, 1/2 inch thick
2/3 cup blanched almond flour
2/3 cup tapioca flour
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon onion granules
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup avocado oil
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, tapioca flour, salt, onion granules and paprika. Be sure to remove all lumps from almond flour.
In a medium sized mixing bowl, beat eggs and add chicken pieces. Coat well.
Add 3-4 pieces of dredged chicken into flour mixture and coat well with breading. Shake off excess breading and place coated chicken on a parchment covered cookie sheet and repeat with remaining pieces.
Pour avocado oil into a medium sized skillet, preferably cast iron. Heat onto a medium-low flame.
When oil is hot, place 4-5 chicken tenders. Do not overcrowd. Heat for about 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Place chicken tenders on a paper towel lined plate.
Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
Serve with ketchup or bar-b-Q sauce.
Chicken tenders will store in a ziplock back in the fridge for up to 3 days.
