Guilt Free Chicken Fingers! February 25 2014, 0 Comments


I am in love! This chicken finger recipe will curb any unhealthy cravings you've had lately! The best part is these chicken fingers are low-carb, full of protein and so good they just can't be real.... But oh my friends, they are, and I am very happy about that :) Makes 4 Servings Nutrition facts per serving: 24.3 grams of protein, 225 calories, 11.75 grams of fat, 6.5 grams of carbohydrates, 2.1 grams of fiber Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Slice chicken breasts into long strips, 1-2″ wide (I bought thin pre-sliced chicken to save time)
  3. Mix together almond meal, paprika, garlic, onion powder, creole seasoning, pepper, cumin and salt
  4. In a separate small bowl, lightly beat 2 eggs
  5. Dip each piece of chicken in egg and then coat with almond spice mixture. Repeat this step until all chicken pieces have been coated
  6. Place on a cookie sheet with aluminum foil or you can  use cooking spray to grease pan
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or less depending on the thickness of the sliced chicken (mine only baked for 18 minutes since they were very thinly sliced)
