Clean Eating Chicken Fingers

When I was making my grocery list this weekend I was having a serious brain fart on what to make. Sometimes I feel like I don't have an entire blog full of recipes and like I'll never think of what to make for dinner! Weirdo. I know. Anyway, I reached for my Eat Clean Diet book for some inspiration, and I found it! These were quick and easy and got a thumbs up (literally) from B. They go perfectly with yam chips and a little low sugar ketchup, of course.



This recipe was inspired by the Baked Chicken Tenders in the Eat Clean Diet Cookbook 2.

Ingredients 
-1/2 cup almond flour
-2 pieces Ezekiel bread ground into bread crumbs 
-1 tsp chili powder
-1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 1/2 tsp onion powder
-1/2 tsp paprika
-1/2 tsp oregano
-1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
- 1 egg 1 egg white
-1/4 cup unsweetened Unsweetened Silk Vanilla Almond Milk 
-1 lb. chicken breast cut into 1 inch strips



Directions
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. 
2. In a shallow bowl combine all ingredients except eggs and almond milk. Mix well and set aside.
3. In a seperate bowl, combine egg and milk and whisk together. 
4. Dredge one strip of chicken in "breading", then in egg mixture, then back in breading. 
5. Place on a prepared cookie sheet and repeat for rest of chicken. 
6. Bake for 15 minutes and enjoy!

  4. Can any type of flour work? I have oat and whole wheat flour and really don't want to buy another type. Thanks!

    1. Those flours are going to be too powdery. I would stick with almond.

    1. Umm.. I only used 2 pieces of bread on about 10 strips which would be 1/5 piece of bread on each- so probably not :)

  9. I noticed some of your recipes call for oat flour and some almond flour..what's the difference? Should I have both? Just getting started with clean eating, so very unfamiliar, but making list now. :) Love the recipe options you have!
