So Easy!!! I used Natural Almond Flour for this recipe and turned out great. Next time I will try baking instead of deep frying. Almond flour is also a great batter substitute for traditional Beer Battered Fish. Pros: Healthy gluten free alternative to traditional wheat flours Cons: Deep Fried
This was very easy to make my husband - who doesn't ordinarily like much (especially anything healthy) really liked this chicken. It was a little dry but nothing a little hot sauce didn't fix...plus I probably over did the chicken on my own. Pros: my husband liked them! Cons: a little dry
Absolutely Delicious. I doubled the recipe and I didn't use blender just chopped my silvered almonds and added to the dry ingredients without oil. I only used about 2 egg whites with a doubled recipe. Put them on a cooling rack sprayed with oil then sprayed the tops of my tenders and slid a cookie sheet under them for drips. 25 minutes in convect oven was perfect. I dipped mine in a little ranch dressing & my husband drizzled some honey on his. I also cooked the grilled green beans and had roasted cauliflower with Parmesan sprinkled on top. Delicious meal. Pros: Crisp easy taste great Cons: None
Great for picky eaters My daughter is VERY picky like she would rather not eat anything than eat a grilled cheese made with the wrong kind of cheese. She loved these! I plan to make a batch of the coating and put in a mason jar to keep on hand and use it to coat a variety of things. Kids love food that is coated and then dipped. Pros: Easy to make Cons: None
Whole Family Loves These!! I have started a gluten-fee soy-free dairy free diet. Finding recipes that the whole family can eat and enjoy has been a challenge and a learning experience. Just substituting the whole wheat flour for a gluten-free one makes these perfect. And even my picky 6 year old gobbles these right up!!
YUM! I pound out my chicken tenders so that they are all the same thickness to allow for consistent cooking time and 20-25 minutes is just far too long. Even after leaving them in for 15 minutes they were too dry. I didn't put the almonds in a blender but rather mashed it by hand which gave it a good crunch! Really like the flavor with the almonds paprika etc. Very tastey indeed. Pros: Flavor Cons: Recommends cooking for too long
It sticks to the chicken! I did not have almonds so I used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup wheat ritz crackers that I crushed with my fingers. It still came out crispy and delicious. The best home made tenders I have made!!! Better than pan frying!!!! I think the best part is it actually sticks to the chicken unlike other chicken tender recipies I got from foodnetwork. Pros: Crispy Cons: none
But I don't like Almonds. My daughter claim not to like almonds but she couldn't get enough of these almond-crusted chicken fingers. What kids don't know won't stop them from eating a dish. Pros: Tender healty easy to make. Cons: na
Excellent Flavor! Love these! And what a great alternative to otherwise fat laden food. Not a fan of paprika so left it out and added 1/2 tsp dehydrated minced onions. Also used 1 whole egg mixed with some buttermilk for the wash. Next time will try soaking the chicken in plain buttermilk (no egg) before breading. Plenty of wash but could have used a bit more of the almond crumb mix. Excellent on their own but was even better dipped in homemade ranch (homemade mayo buttermilk and seasonings). Served with polenta and salad. Pros: Tasty healthy Cons: Breading is a messy affair
Best Chicken Finger Recipe This recipe is amazing! I started making these a couple years ago in college when I was on a tight budget with not a lot of time but still wanted to eat healthy. These are amazing and super easy! 100% recommend!
Deeeeeeelicious I made these for dinner and oh my god these are delicious. Not to mention super duper easy. The instruction say 40 minutes to make but it only took me 30. These will for sure be a regular meal for me. All that protein practically no fat AND delicious?? Are you kidding!?! Your kids will love these your man will love these and you will looooove these. Pros: Super quick and easy!
This is a very tasty recipe! Healthy too! I did have a problem after I breaded the other half of the chicken. The nut/flour mixture became to gooey and would not stay on the chicken. I think next time I will divide the nut/flour mixture into 2 bowls to solve this problem. I also used boneless skinless chicken breasts and just cut them into 4-5 smaller pieces instead of using chicken tenders. Came out moist tasty and delicious. Janine St. Augustine Florida
Perfect replacement for fried chicken fingers. You get the health benefits of the almonds but it also satisfies that craving for fried food. Excellent recipe for kids and toddlers! We also used chicken breasts cut into smaller strips and they were great.
It was very good i do agree with the other comment about the nut mixture getting to gooey. I think putting the nut mixture in two bowls is a very good idea. My 6 year old daughter also loved them!! Yum!!
The whole family enjoyed these when I made them for dinner last night. They did get a little messy when I was trying to bread them but overall for they are worth the work to cut out the fat and calories.
This recipe tasted great! I used two bowls instead of the bag and I also put alittle bit of salt and pepper in my egg mixture. The batter covered great on about 6 or 7 chicken tenders before it became gooey. The chicken came out tender and juicy when cooked for about 25 minuets My family loved them. A light honey mustard or bbq sauce will go great for dipping.This will go in my favorites! K.Brand Lakeland Florida
These are great...simple to make very tasty and definitely healthier for the kids than fast food at the drive thru. I placed the mixture in a cookie sheet and spread it out kind of thin so it didn't get gooey or thick. Will definitely make these again. The almonds give it a great flavor.
I just made your Almond-crusted Chicken Fingers recipe. I am so excited because my two sons (who are the pickiest eaters!) and my husband absolutely LOVED it!!! They literally raved over it throughout the entire meal! Thank you so much!! I can't wait to try more of your recipes! I also appreciated the tip about putting the chicken on a rack to avoid soggy chicken. I will use this tip whenever I want crispy oven-baked chicken!
I made this last night for dinner and love them. Even my 7 year old ate it up! Quick Tip: the batter doesn't need to combine with the oil it just needs to be like bread crumbs then the egg whites will make them stick to the chicken. That being said I added a little bit more oil before realizing I didn't need too. I bought fresh chicken breast tenderloin for this and it turned out amazing. I made 8 pieces but had to whip together a little bit more of the almond crumbs. Also I only used about half of the egg. Don't crack all 4 at the beginning! start with two and add more if needed. The little ones thought it was just chicken tenders and ate it with a little ketchup. I served them with broccoli chopped carrots and a salad. Over all this is a new "go to" dinner for my family that the whole family LOVES.
