Almond Flour Chicken Tenders

Serves 4 to 6

1 ½ lbs. chicken tenders
1 egg
½ cup almond flour
¼ cup tapioca starch
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. smoked paprika
¼ tsp. pepper
1–2 Tbsp. olive oil

Whisk 1 egg in a shallow bowl and set aside. In a second shallow bowl, combine almond flour, tapioca starch and spices and stir until well mixed. Prep the chicken tenders by dipping each into the egg wash and then into the flour mixture and placing onto a tray. Heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil in a pan on medium-high heat and begin cooking chicken in batches. Cook tenders for a few minutes on each side until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Add additional oil if needed during the cooking process. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!

Crispy Oven Roasted  Potatoes

Serves 3 or 4

3 pounds russet potatoes
⅓ cup olive or avocado oil
1 ½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. dried parsley


Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch cubes. Place potatoes in a large stock pot and cover with water by 1 to 2 inches. Add baking soda and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes until just fork tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. While the potatoes are cooking, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Drain the potatoes in a colander and place hot potatoes into a large bowl with ⅓ cup oil, 1 tsp. sea salt, ½ tsp. oregano, and ¼ tsp. black pepper. Lightly mix so the potatoes are coated. Place potatoes in a single layer on a greased, rimmed baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking. Remove when they are lightly browned and cooked to your preference. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with additional salt to taste and ¼ tsp. parsley. Enjoy! ::
