chicken tenders


  • 12-16 oz chicken breast (Cut into Tenders)

  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard

  • pinch of sea salt

  • 1 cup raw almonds (blended in food processor to make it crumbly)

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • fresh ground pepper to taste (I use a ton!)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray baking sheet with olive oil spray

  • Combine lemon juice, mustard, salt, garlic powder and pepper in a small bowl

  • Put blended almonds on larger plate or bowl

  • Dip chicken tenders in mustard mixture, then immediately dip in almonds (making sure to cover the entire tender!)

  • Place on baking sheet, bake in oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until cooked through (depends on the thickness of the tenders)

  • OPTIONAL: Place cooked chicken tenders under broiler for a few minutes to toast the almonds

  • Enjoy!
