Almond Parmesan Crusted Chicken Tenders

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1 1/2 cups ground almonds or almond meal
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. Place ground almonds, Parmesan, salt and pepper into a shallow dish, stirring to combine.  (If you have whole almonds on hand like we did, you can grind them in a powerful blender.  We used our Blendtec.)
  3. Place coated chicken strips into hot saute pan. Cook each side for about 3 minutes, until cooked through and browned. Remove strips from skillet and let cool on a baking rack or paper towel lined plate. Serve warm with your favorite chicken strip dips. My boys enjoy ketchup, yogurt Ranch, mustard and honey.
