Paleo Chicken Tenders
1.5lb Chicken tenders
1 Egg, beaten
3/4 cup Almond flour
1/3 cup Tapioca or Arrowroot starch
3/4 tsp Paprika
3/4 tsp Onion powder
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Sea salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (opt)
Avocado oil or Pork Fat for frying
Beat egg in a shallow dish. In another clean shallow dish combine all dry ingredients and mix with a fork.
Preheat skillet over medium heat with about 1/4 cup of oil/fat for frying (you may need to add more as the tenders cook and new ones are added).
Remove tenders from packaging and pat dry with paper towels. Dip in egg wash, let excess drip off, then coat with breading.
Fry on both sides for about 5-7 minutes until cooked through.
*Oven Option: bake them in the oven (425 for 15ish minutes), just brush a little bit of oil on both sides first and flip at the halfway point!
