  • 1 pound chicken tenderloins

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with avocado oil.

  2. In a shallow bowl or dish, combine the almond flour, shredded coconut, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to combine all the dry ingredients.

  3. In another shallow bowl or dish, beat the eggs until well blended.

  4. Dip each chicken tenderloin into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Then coat the chicken in the coconut-almond flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating to the chicken. Repeat this process for all the chicken tenders.

  5. In a large skillet, heat the avocado oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the coated chicken tenders to the skillet. Cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.

  6. Transfer the partially cooked chicken tenders to the prepared baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

  7. Once the chicken tenders are cooked through and crispy, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

  8. Serve the coconut chicken tenders with your favorite dipping sauce or alongside a salad or vegetables for a complete meal.
