Who doesn't love a good, crispy chicken finger? This simple low carb version uses coconut and almond meal for a crunchy exterior. If you are seeking a sweet version, add some Stevia to the coconut and almond powder to add a touch of sweetness. For something a bit spicy, consider adding some Sriracha to the eggs. No matter what spice combination you choose, these come out crunchy and delicious.

1

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.

2

Place the coconut and almond meal in a shallow dish. Place the egg whites in a shallow dish. If you desire a sweeter chicken finger, add some Stevia to the coconut mixture.

3

Dip the chicken into the eggs and press into the coconut. Place on wire rack. Repeat with all tenders. Bake for 15-20 minutes. If the tenders aren’t browning, broil for the last 1-2 minutes or cooking to crispy up the coconut.
