One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

Chicken Tenders

— gluten-free / Paleo —

“Breaded” with a mixture of almond powder and spices, these chicken tenders are cruncy on the outside but juicy on the inside.  Baked in the oven, they’re nothing but good, real food!


  • 1lb chicken tenders
  • 1 cup almond powder
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 2 eggs
  • Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  • Combine all dry ingredients in one mixing bowl. 
  • Break eggs into a 2nd bowl and mix.
  • One by one, dip each chicken tender first into the egg mixture, and then into the flour mixture.  Use a spoon to ensure that its entire surface is powdered with the flour mixture.
  • Place the powdered chicken tenders on a wire oven rack, set onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  (That way, any crumbs that flake off during baking won’t mess up your oven!)
  • Bake 16-18 minutes at 350*F.
  • Serve with vegetable accompaniments and your favourite dip.
