Ingredients used for making the best Whole30® chicken tenders

Organic Chicken Breast – We like free-range chicken.

Wildly Organic Almond Flour – I love to use this almond flour with chicken tenders because the flour is thicker than regular almond flour, and it gives the tenders a great texture. In addition, the nutritional value and health benefits of the Wildly Organic Almond Flour exceeds that of regular flour. It’s made with unbleached almonds and has been minimally processed. It has a great nutty flavor.

Eggs – Eggs can be optional if you are on an egg-free diet; however, they do help to keep the breading together. It’s best to use eggs from free-range chickens.

Wildly Organic Olive Oil – This oil is a great selection to use to cook the chicken strips. This high quality olive oil is made from organic olives from Tunisia. It has a great fresh flavor that is great to add to salads or dips.

Spices

Wildly Organic Himalayan Salt – Himalayan salt is one of the best to use for your health. It contains a great number of minerals, such as iron, that your body needs. Wildly Organic Himalayan Salt is hand-mined in the Himalayan mountains of northern Pakistan. I love that Wildly Organic does not add any anti-caking or free-flowing additives, leaving the salt in its unrefined and pure form.

Wildly Organic Black Pepper – It is made from organic black pepper. I love using it in the spice blend for these chicken tenders.

Wildly Organic Garlic Granules – The flavor of these garlic granules is almost like fresh! It gives the chicken tenders a great taste and enhances the rest of the spices. I also love that the granules are made from organic garlic with no other additives.

Wildly Organic Onion Granules – Like the garlic granules, the onion granules from Wildly Organic have a strong flavor that complements the garlic. These two spices are the main ones that give the chicken tenders the taste everyone loves. These onion granules are made from organic onions with no other added ingredients.

Wildly Organic Paprika – This is made from organic paprika; it adds a mild spicy and warm flavor to the chicken tenders.

Wildly Organic Parsley (optional) – I sprinkle the parsley flakes over the chicken strips after cooking for an enhancement of flavor.

These crispy and healthy chicken tenders are so delicious that they will become a dinnertime staple for your family in no time. No need to cook two meals, one compliant for yourself and one for the rest of the family.
