Crispy Chicken Tenders

If you’re going keto, crispy chicken sounds off limits, but not anymore. A bit of almond flour and Parmesan cheese make these even better than the flour versions. Add a bit of curry, chili powder and more to personalize it. Using the air fryer gives it a wonderful crunch.

  • 1 1/2 lbs Chicken tenders (about 12 strips)
  • 2 med Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Almond flour
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp Salt and pepper, each
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tbs Butter, melted

1. Preheat air fryer to 375°.

2. Spray cooking sheet or line with parchment paper.

3. In a shallow bowl beat eggs and set aside.

4. In another bowl, combine almond flour, Parmesan, garlic, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper and paprika.

5. Dip each chicken tender into the egg mixture, then dredge in the breading. Completely coat each one.

6. Place each on the cooking sheet and brush with the melted butter.

7. Air fry for 15 minutes, flip and cook another 5 to 10 minutes until cooked through. Adjust cooking time based on thickness of the tenders. You can also bake in conventional oven.
