Almond Meal Chicken Bites

This is one of those recipes that I make about once a week and is easily adaptable to different tastes.  You can easily add different seasonings to change the flavor for different meals.  These are baked vs fried and are a much healthier choice for your kids (and yourself!) than the drive thru.  Not to mention they take less than a half hour to make.  Give them a try this week!

Almond Meal Chicken Tenders

(about 4 servings)

1 pound of chicken tenders, cut into bite size pieces

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup almond meal

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

salt/pepper, season salt, garlic salt, etc–add whatever seasonings you’d like (about a teaspoon)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  I set up a little assembly line with the chicken bites, a bowl with the beaten eggs, the almond meal mixture, and then the cookie sheet.  Dip your chicken bites into the egg then coat completely with the almond meal mixture.  Place on cookie sheet and continue with remaining chicken.  Bake about 12 minutes or until there is no pink when you cut one open.  Serve immediately.
