Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders

Jump to recipe

Add a little variety to your dinner mix with these Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders. They are quick and easy and require minimal planning since most of the ingredients are likely stocked in your pantry and refrigerator. The crust of these tenders is made from almond meal. Almond meal is simply ground up almonds that creates a flour-like consistency. Like almond meal, almond flour is made from ground almonds as well. The main difference is that almond flour has a finer texture and consistency than almond meal. Because this recipe uses almond meal instead of wheat flour, this recipe is gluten-free and grain-free. It is also low in net carbohydrates, meaning that it will have less of an impact on your blood sugar levels compared to wheat flour.

Serve your tenders with a bed of greens or a side of sautéed vegetables to make this a complete meal!
