Both my gluten-free husband and picky son LOVE these chicken tenders! In fact my son has frequently declared that other than peanut butter he hates ALL nuts, and is frequently suspicious of recipes that I make because so many seem to have almond flour in – which is a fair point! But he really can't detect it in this dish – maybe one day I'll tell him!

The tenders only require a few ingredients and they bake up so wonderfully. Tasty, delicious, and of course low carb! Check out all my low carb chicken recipes!

How to Make Low Carb Chicken Tenders

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 or a wire rack. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.

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)! Check out my full list of low carb ketchup options – both homemade and store bought!

What is the best way to reheat these chicken tenders? Even half a recipe is too much for one person.

If you have an air fryer use that. I reheat lots of things in mine.

Gah - sorry! I've never had to reheat them as my family of three always devour them in one meal! I wonder if anyone else has done this? If not I'll try reheating one next time I make them!
