Chicken tenders are one of those foods I don't really want to admit how much I love. And I can't even blame it on childhood memories because I don't think we ever even ate chicken fingers or nuggets as kids. I guess I would have to blame it on late night college eating and my love for dipping anything and everything.
So normally to lighten up traditional chicken tenders, I would reach for breadcrumbs and bake them instead of the traditional deep frying. Easy peasy. However on a Paleo, low carb diet, or gluten free diet, you need to find a good substitute for the breadcrumbs. My person favorite? Almond meal. It provides a great crunch and I actually prefer the nutty flavor and texture to breadcrumbs. It also adds some extra protein and is a healthier alternative to breadcrumbs.
