  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder ,
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper ,
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika ,
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning ,
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt ,
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper ,
  • coconut oil (or Chicken breasts with thigh meat cut into small tender strips)
  • 2 cups almond meal (or Chicken breasts with thigh meat cut into small tender strips)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper ,
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder ,
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onion ,
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt ,
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (or Chicken breasts with thigh meat cut into small tender strips)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning ,
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast (or Chicken breasts with thigh meat cut into small tender strips)

Instructions

  • Prepare Chicken: In resealable plastic bag or sealable container, combine coconut milk and marinade spices until blended and smooth. Coconut milk separates in the can so you’ll want to make sure it is mixed well to create a thick, rich milk. Using fork, poke uncooked chicken tenders on all sides to allow greater permeability. Place chicken in milk mixture, shaking sealed container to completely coat chicken. Allow chicken to soak overnight or at least 6 hours before cooking. Cooking Directions: In an 8”x8” pan with deep sides, combine dry coating ingredients with a whisk. Using tongs or a fork so that you don’t wipe off the coconut milk coating, roll each coconut-milk coated tender in the flour mixture. Fully coat and proceed with either skillet frying or baking directions. *If frying in a cast iron skillet, heat 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil (enough to coat the skillet well) over medium heat. Place tenders carefully in hot skillet, frying on each side until golden before flipping (about 5-8 minutes per side). When tenders are golden on both sides and chicken is cooked through, place tenders on a plate covered with a paper towel to cool for a couple minutes before serving. *If baking, preheat oven to 375f. Lightly grease raised baking sheet (with rack for better crisping) with coconut oil. Place coated tenders on pan and lightly mist the top of the tenders with coconut oil spray or other oil if extra crispiness is desired. Bake for about 20 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through. For a darker crust, turn oven to broil for a minute or two before taking out of oven (watch chicken carefully to avoid burning). Allow to cool for a couple minutes before serving. Enjoy plain or with your desired dipping sauce!
