Paleo Chicken Fingers
Posted By: Nicky
Chicken fingers are a quick and easy meal that I like to make at least once a week. I found this recipe at liveprimal.com and then made a few subtle changes. This site contains a wide variety of paleo recipes, so check it out: http://liveprimal.com/LPrecipes.pdf.
These chicken fingers are very easy to make. I try to keep the ingredients on hand. These can be cooked in a frying pan, but I find they turn out better if they are baked in an oven.
What you will need:
1-2 lb boneless skinless chicken tenders or chicken breasts cut into strips
1 egg, beaten
1/2 c almond flour
1/2 t sea salt
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp dry mustard powder
olive or coconut oil to line cooking sheet or for skillet
Set the oven to 375 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and coat with oil. Place egg into a bowl and beat. Place the almond flour with seasonings into another bowl. Dip each chicken piece into the egg bowl and then dip into the flour mixture. Place each piece on the cookie sheet.
Place the cookie sheet in the oven for 30-40 minutes, turning halfway through. The chicken fingers are done when the juices run clear and there is no pink.
These can be eaten plain, topped with marinara sauce, or used in salads.
