Just one bite and you’ll go nuts over these grown-up chicken tenders. Coated in perfectly spiced almond flour and baked instead of fried, these paleo-friendly and gluten-free strips are higher in protein and lower in carbs than their deep-fried counterpart – plus they have a pleasantly nutty taste! Pair them with homemade ketchup and carrot fries for the ultimate upgrade to your favorite kids’ meal.Top View Almond-Coated Chicken Bites on Wooden Serving Board Next to Fresh Ketchup | Vitacost Blog
