Recipe For Almond and Parmesan Chicken Tenders
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 cup of almonds, chopped in a food processor to a coarse meal texture
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic or onion powder
big pinch of kosher salt
couple of grinds of black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Set up a breading station:
- Whisk eggs and then whisk in lemon juice and put in a shallow bowl.
- Mix the almonds, parmesan, paprika, garlic or onion powder, salt, and pepper and put in a shallow bowl.
Working a couple at a time, coat chicken tenders with egg mixture, then with almond mixture, and shake off excess. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet; no crowding.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
