Recipe

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.

Directions

  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.
