Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour (almond meal)
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan Crystal Salt
  • 1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1/4 cup tapioca or potato starch

  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Natural Goat’s yogurt (Optional) for dipping
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Trim any overhanging edges of the parchment paper.
  2. Place the almond flour, salt and fresh cracked pepper into a bowl and stir it together. Place the eggs in another bowl with a splash of water and whisk them.
  3. Dip the chicken tenders, one at a time, into the tapioca or potato starch, then into the egg then into the almond flour. (Keeping one hand for the egg and one for the starch and flour makes this a lot less messy.) Lay the chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the chicken for 25 minutes, or until it is crispy and beginning to golden brown.
  4. You can also let the chicken rest for 30-60 minutes if you have time for it in your fridge before you bake it.
  5. While the chicken is baking, prepare the sauce. In a small frying pan over high heat bring the maple syrup, hot sauce and garlic powder to a boil then set it aside.
  6. When the chicken has finished baking remove it from the oven and turn the oven to broil. Dip each of the chicken tenders in the sauce then lay them back on the baking sheet. Save the extra sauce.
  7. Put the chicken back in the oven for 2-5 minutes for the glaze to caramelize slightly. Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn’t burn.
  8. Baste the chicken with any extra sauce one they come out of the oven then serve immediately.
