Almond Flour Chicken Tenders (Whole30 + Paleo) – Easy and incredibly delicious weeknight chicken tenders!  Made with real, simple ingredients!


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into tenders/strips
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Crack both eggs in medium bowl and scramble with fork; set aside.
  3. Combine almond flour, arrowroot powder, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and paprika and mix together.
  4. Take large baking sheet and line with parchment paper.
  5. Line up the prep stations by placing chicken strips, next to your egg wash, then almond four mixture and then your cookie sheet.
  6. Take a chicken strip and completely submerge in egg wash.
  7. Let the excess egg wash fall off as you lift the chicken out of the wash.
  8. Place chicken in almond flour mixture and ensure it is completely covered in the mixture.
  9. Shake off the excess.
  10. Place on cookie sheet and then repeat with the rest of the chicken.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through (flip gently).
  12. If you want a crispier outside feel free to place under the broiler for a minute or two (just watch carefully so they don’t burn).
  13. Serve immediately with compliant ranch dressing, ketchup or bbq sauce.
