I used to make chicken fingers for my kids all the time…usually out of a frozen, processed box and popped in the oven!!
Now that my diet has changed, and I avoid processed chemicals, we still like this meal, but with a slightly different recipe.
I still don’t want to spend time slaving in the kitchen, so I have created this recipe to be quick and easy. Like a homemade “shake and bake!”
To make it even quicker, you can mix up the “breading” mixture and cut the chicken into strips ahead of time. Enjoy!
Homemade Paleo Chicken Fingers
I love that this recipe takes an old favourite and keeps its deliciousness while also makes sure I feel awesome after eating it because it’s healthy too!
- 2 lbs chicken breasts cut into strips
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp rosemary or thyme
- 1.2 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 450F. Cover a large baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large food storage bag, combine all ingredients except chicken. Place a couple of pieces of chicken in the bag and shake until coated. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.
Place chicken on a lined dish and bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Turn over and bake 15 minutes longer or until done. Serve & enjoy!
Tip: You can roast veggies in another pan at the same time. Just chop, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. They might not need to cook as long as the chicken, so check them periodically.
