PALEO WHOLE30 CHICKEN TENDERS

These Paleo Whole30 Chicken Tenders are easy and packed with flavor! A healthy version of a classic favorite- made gluten, dairy,  grain free, and low carb.


Making Paleo Chicken Tenders has been on my to-do list and now I’m regretting waiting so long. Oh my gosh they are so good!! They are easy to make- don’t be intimidated by the 3 step breading process. It’s so quick and simple. They’ll be in the oven in no time and then done in 15 minutes!

Make the breading station: choose 3 dishes that are flat bottomed and will fit the tenders. The coconut flour goes in the first bowl, then the eggs and milk, then the almond flour and spices. It will go- dry, wet, dry, sheet tray. So make sure that is ready. It is so simple and will go quickly once you have it laid out.


These are juicy, perfectly seasoned, and the breading is so good! You seriously can’t tell it’s healthy!
