Easy Keto Chicken Tenders

Summer is officially in full swing at our house! But because Joseph will be going to a summer preschool program, I will still be doing drop-off’s every morning. The decision to have him enrolled wasn’t easy, I selfishly wanted to keep him home a little longer before he started kindergarten.

Everyone says I’m crazy to want to work from home all day with all the kids, but I guess I’ve grown used to it and enjoy having them home with me.

Baked Keto Chicken Tenders recipe below!

The one thing I do have a little bit of struggle with is making time for all the things everyone wants to do and still fitting in a full-time job worth of hours. For this, I plan using a block schedule where I work for short bursts of times during the day and pushing off most of my work until Franklyn gets home when he will take the kids.

I’m looking forward to the new routine and being able to sit down and have lunch with the kids and making classic favorite recipes like these delicious Easy Keto chicken tenders!

Baked Gluten Free Chicken Tenders

It’s not always easy finding meals that everyone will equally love, but these gluten-free chicken tenders are a hit with everyone! I love that they easily go with so many side dishes like Cauliflower Mac & Cheese, or for dinner with a side of this mushroom and spinach cauliflower rice.

These chicken tenders can also be cut into strips and wrapped in a burrito or served over a salad. The possibilities are endless!

Tip: These Keto chicken tenders were baked in the oven but they can also be made in an air fryer!

Allergy-Friendly Alternatives:

To make these chicken tenders I used almond flour, but you can also use coconut flour. I’ve even used pork rinds in place of flour and parmesan cheese and the results were just as yummy and crispy!

Makes 10 to 12 chicken tenders

Ingredients:

Chicken tenderloins – 1 pound
1 egg
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup of almond flour
Teaspoon salt – ½
Black pepper – ½ teaspoon
Garlic powder – ¼ teaspoon
Onion powder – ¼ teaspoon
Paprika – ¼ teaspoon

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a bowl beat the egg.
Grab ziploc bag and add almond flour, cheese,  salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika.
Pour flour mixture in a bowl.
Dip each chicken tenderloin in the egg and then flour mixture to coat.


Place each covered tenderloin on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Allow the tenders to rest for 5 minutes.


Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

My kids love when I serve them with this two-ingredient dip, my Copycat Chick-Fil-A Sauce or even aioli!

Pin for later!

So that’s my plan for this summer! Hopefully, I can squeeze in some outdoor fun and make these sponge water bombs again (even the big kids have fun getting soaked) or even letting the kids get messy with sidewalk chalk and finger paint! Keeping my fingers crossed that everything goes as planned and that we’ll have a much more fun summer this year!
