Ingredients

Chicken Fingers

  • 1lb (454g) chicken breasts, cut into 1-1.5 inch wide strips (approx 34 strips per breast)
  • 1 cup almond meal (approx 1.5 cups of whole almonds if grinding them up yourself, or buy pre-prepared almond meal)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • ½  tsp salt
  • ½  tsp pepper
  • ⅓ cup parmesan cheese, grated *optional
  • 1 egg
  • Avocado oil (or other high heat cooking oil) and/or spray

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • ½ cup 2% Plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and grease it with about 1 Tbsp of avocado oil. This will help the chicken fingers really crisp up.
  2. In a large bowl, crack your egg and whisk it until blended.
  3. In another bowl, combine almond meal (if you are making your own just pulse 1.5 cups of raw almonds into a coarse powder), paprika, salt and pepper, and parmesan if using it.
  4. Cut your chicken into 1-1.5 inch wide strips and pat dry with paper towel.
  5. Add your chicken pieces into the bowl with the egg and use a fork to lift and mix pieces so that they’re covered on both sides. Allow any excess egg to drip off before placing in the almond mixture.
  6. Next, dip the egg coated chicken pieces into the almond mixture one at a time, use a fork to press down on the tops and coat well, flip the piece with a fork and repeat on the other side then place on the greased baking sheet. Repeat until all pieces are coated.
  7. Place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Remove and flip them over and finish baking for 2 more minutes or until no pink remains on the inside
  8. Meanwhile, whisk your honey mustard ingredients together in a small bowl. When the chicken is ready to come out of the oven, serve together.
