Cooking for one? This simple lo carb, gluten free, paleo chicken recipe is quick and easy, be it summer or a late night home from work. If cooking for more than one, then just double or triple and so on.
Chicken tenders are simply smaller pieces of boned, skinned chicken breast. You can buy them already cut to size or you can thaw a boneless chicken breast and cut to size. Dunk in some moisture (like egg or milk – you can even use olive oil it you want to go Paleo), roll in some gluten free flour and you have your main course. Put on your dinner or lunch plate with a bunch of raw, cooked or roasted veggies and you have a healthy, lo carb, clean eating meal.
Summer Cooking Tip
Instead of heating up the whole kitchen, I use my NuWave stove top halogen oven for making these gluten-free, chicken tenders. I can’t stress how much I love this to keep my kitchen cool in the summer.
– 4oz chicken
– 1 T milk
– 1/3 cup almond flour or quinoa flour (I use Mike’s Quinoa flour because it does not have a strong flavor like the cheap brands found on store shelves)
– Seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, ground red pepper, garlic powder)
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Slice chicken breast into 3 tenders (or make nuggets by cutting into cubes).
3. In small bowl, mix milk and any seasonings you prefer.
4. Put flour in a separate small bowl.
5. Add chicken to milk mixture and toss to coat well.
6. Then one at a time, place chicken in coat both sides of chicken.
7. Place chicken in glass baking dish and bake 30-40 min., turning over halfway through (or if using Halogen oven, place in pan at bottom of oven and bake the same amount of time.)
9. In last 5 min., turn on broiler and broil 2-3 min. each side or in Halogen oven, turn up heat and move to high rack for same amount of time.
