Sunday Dinner: Paleo Chicken Tenders

WOW. These HIT THE SPOT! I love them better than any other chicken tenders I've made.

Hello Wonderful! We served ours with a honey mustard dipping sauce....EEEIIII happiness!! I thought maybe I did something wrong because it tasted so good it couldn't be paleo! 

Serve with some cauliflower mashed potatoes and kale salad and BAM. I could have these every Sunday. It's a great change up to red meat and the a big hit with my kids too! 

Paleo Baked Chicken Tenders

3-4 Chicken Breasts cut into strips or about 10 Chicken Tenders
4 Tbs. Ghee 
1 C. Almond Meal 
1 1/2 Tbs. Sea Salt 
1/2 Tsp. Pepper 
2 1/4 Tsp. Paprika 
1/8 Tsp. Turmeric 
1/8 Tsp. Onion Powder 
1/8 Tsp Garlic powder

Preheat Oven to 400. 
Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat or foil. Place ghee on prepared baking sheet and place in oven for a minute or two to melt. 
Place almond meal and seasonings in a large ziploc bag. 
Rinse chicken and blot dry with a paper towel. 
Toss in chicken into seasoning mixture and shake until well coated. 
Place chicken strips on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. 
Take out and flip over, baking another 10-12 minutes. You can bake an additional 5-10 minutes if not done. (Mine took only about 20-25 minutes). 

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce: 
3/4 C. Paleo Mayonnaise (I like this version best)
3 Tbs. Honey
2 Tablespoons of Yellow Mustard 
1 Tablespoon of Lemon juice (or 1/2 lemon) 
2 Tablespoons of fresh Squeezed Orange Juice 
Combine all ingredients and whisk together. 
Cover and chill for 2 hours.
