I’ve been making a big batch of these chicken tenders on a weekly basis! They’re great fresh out of the oven, but they’re also just as good after a day of two in the fridge. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Paleo Chicken Tenders

These baked chicken tenders are crusted with a mix of almond meal, shredded coconut and a blend of spices. They’re grain free and packed with nutrients, but no one will ever know!
