My non-low-carbing husband LOVES these chicken tenders! Like several of the recipes I’ve cooked over the years, he prefers them to high carb ones. I wanted to make a video of these to show you how easy they are – and with only a few ingredients!

In a bowl, combine almond flour, flaxseed meal, paprika, salt and pepper. The combination of the almond and flaxseed meal gives it a great texture and flavor, and the paprika adds a little color and spice! Beat a couple of eggs in a separate bowl.
Dip a chicken tenderloin into the egg, turn to coat, then drop it into the dry mixture. Coat it thoroughly then place it on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with some low carb ketchup: I like both Heinz Reduced Sugar Ketchup (1g net carbs per tablespoon) and Walden Farms Ketchup (0g net carbs per tablespoon)!
