How to Make Low Carb Paprika Chicken Bites
Mix together almond flour, flaxseed meal, and paprika in a bowl. Add an egg to a different bowl and beat it lightly with a fork. Cut the chicken breasts into chunks (or strips, whichever you prefer) and add them to the egg. Stir it all around so that all the chicken pieces are covered in the egg.
Dunk each piece of chicken into the paprika “breading” and turn to coat. Place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat, foil, or parchment paper.
Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with any vegetable side dish, salad, or shirataki rice.
Or you could even put it into a wrap! In the picture below I added some chicken to a low carb tortilla, together with some leftover spinach dip. SO quick and easy!
