  • Preheat oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • In a large shallow bowl mix together shredded coconut, coconut flour, almond flour and spices.
  • In a separate bowl beat one egg and milk
  • Form an assembly line. Dip the chicken into egg mixture, and then dip into breading until all chicken is coated.
  • Place the chicken tenders on lined baking sheet. Bake at 450 for 10-15 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 10 minutes until outside of chicken is browned and crispy.



 Substitutions for this recipe:
  • Flour: You can substitute almond flour/coconut flour 1:1 with whole wheat or panko breadcrumbs, however, they will not be paleo or whole30 friendly.
  • Milk: You can use regular milk in this recipe
  • Salt/Pepper: I don't use salt/pepper in this recipe because I typically serve these with salted french fries. You could add 1/4 teaspoon of each to the breading if you like.
