Grain-Free Chicken Tenders

This is a recipe I took from and is a definite keeper.  Ready in 40 minutes.

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, or to taste
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. MIX almond flour, Parmesan cheese, basil, thyme, salt and pepper together in a bowl.
  3. DIP chicken strips in the melted butter; press strips into almond flour mixture until completely coated.  Transfer coated strips to the prepared baking sheet.
  4. BAKE in the preheated oven on the middle rack until strips are golden brown and no longer pink in the center, at least 20 minutes.
