Snap Kitchen’s Chicken Tender Recipe

Serves 2-3 


Chicken Tenders

  • 1 lb chicken breast, cut into strips 
  • ¼ cup dijon mustard 
  • 2 whole eggs 

Breading Mixture 

  • ¾ cup almond meal/flour 
  • ¼ cup paleo baking flour 
  • 1 tsp sea salt 
  • ½ tsp garlic powder 
  • ½ tsp paprika 
  • ½ tsp mustard powder 
  • ¼ tsp sage 
  • ¼ tsp black pepper 
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 


  • Preheat the oven to 425 F. Cover a baking sheet with a wire rack. This will allow the chicken tenders to crisp up nicely. 
  • Whisk together dijon and eggs in a bowl or dish. In a separate shallow dish or container, mix together all breading ingredients. 
  • One by one, place chicken strips in the egg mixture, then dredge in the breading. Place finished chicken strips on the wire rack. Repeat for all chicken strips. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until breading is golden brown. Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce!
