  • Olive oil cooking spray

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup raw cashews, finely chopped

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • 12 oz chicken tenderloins, boneless & skinless

Prep Time:

15 min.

Total Time:

30 min.


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

  2. Rinse the chicken tenderloins and pat thoroughly dry with a paper towel

  3. Whisk the egg in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix the flour and cashews

  4. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Then dip the chicken into the egg and let the excess drip off.  Then dip it into the cashew mixture, coat both sides and set aside on a pan

  5. Spray both sides of the chicken with the olive oil cooking spray.  Make sure to not use too much, otherwise, the coating for the chicken will be soggy

  6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes and flip halfway through
