  • 2 LBS. Chicken Breast Tenders
  • 4 Eggs Beaten
  • 1 Cup Tapioca Starch Arrowroot works too
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp. Granulated Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. Rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. Thyme
  • 1 Cup Coconut Oil (Divided)


  1. In 3 shallow bowls separate the almond flour, eggs, and starch.  

  2. Add the salt, granulated garlic, paprika, pepper, rosemary, and thyme to the starch and whisk to distribute the seasonings evenly. 

  3. Place your chicken tenders on a plate lined with paper towels. 

  4. Heat 1/2 Cup of the Coconut Oil in a pan. About 350 degrees is your ideal temperature.

  5. Dip your chicken tenders in this order: Almond Flour, Eggs, Starch. Repeat each tender. 

  6. Place the tenders covered in batter in the hot oil and cook for 4 minutes on each side. Repeat until they are all done. 

  7. Halfway through you will likely need to replace the oil with the remaining 1/2 cup. If the oil darkens too much then use a new pan with the new oil. 

  8. Make a new plate lined with paper towels and set each cooked chicken strip on it to allow it the oil to drain. 

  9. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
