This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes. The crunch is just perfect and no frying is necessary! You can serve as a main dish or slice the strips into smaller chunks to throw on top of a salad. I also use this same recipe with turkey strips and for making homemade chicken/turkey nuggets.
2 pounds of organic chicken tenders
1-½ cup roasted almonds
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
1-teaspoon organic garlic powder
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper, optional
Olive Oil Spray
Preheat oven to 475. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with olive oil
Wash tenders and pat dry with paper towel.
Place almonds, sea salt, garlic powder, and pepper into a food processor and process until almonds are very finely chopped. Transfer mixture to a plate or shallow dish.
Whisk eggs in a shallow bowl.
Dip each strip into egg mixture, then coat completely with almond mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, and crispy on each side. I bake about 10-12 minutes per side, spraying each strip with my olive oil spray pump before turning. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or try my favorite Honey Mustard dipping sauce.
