    Delish flavors and easy prep

    My kids ate it up. Simple and quick to make.

    Mine turned out great! I used garlic powder, onion powder and paprika instead of the spices suggested. Not sure what people expect from almond flour- mine were crispier than I expected

    Horrible recipe, nothing like the picture, not crispy at all, just mushy breading.

    Didn’t get brown or crispy as shown in the photos. Disappointing.

    I loved it, had to make 4 times the batter for 4 breasts. Kids ok’d it, but not a fave. I will use less paprika next time, but the picky hubs gave it a 2 thumbs up, so it’s a win.

    The batter is super tasty. Not sure if my oven sucks but they did not turn out as crispy as the pictures. I’ll try a higher temperature next time.

    Delicious, I didn't use all the spices bc I didn't have them on hand. But it still worked. I'm sure with the spices it'd be even better

    Loved these babies. I tweaked em a bit and used smoked paprika, white pepper, garam masala and a touch of turmeric. Could have eaten thousands. Will dream of them this evening

    I had almond paste not the flour which I got the two confused when I bought it.. so I looked up the difference and made it work with some gluten free pizza dough and it turned out awesome!

    My kids love this recipe and enjoy helping better than the processed chicken strips and great to take to college as part of a salad

    Fantastic! My partner even said they taste better than the normal chicken fingers. I've made them twice now and would only lower the salt content.

    Delicious! Definitely worth it, although if I could change anything, I would find a way to lower the calories. The almond flour is delicious, but it's so high in calories! I wonder if there is a low carb flour that is lower in calories?

    The Paleo Chicken Fingers turned out great! A little salty., really tasty. Used pecans instead of almonds. The pecans were very moist. Will try almonds next time.

    Moist! Delicious! Fast! Absolutely one of the most amazing paleo dishes I've had that my family also thoroughly enjoyed!

    Awesome, I love them! They are easy to make and taste great. They are great to eat with veggies, pickles, salad, etc. they also do great for left over's or multiple meals.

    I loved these so much! I have been using almond meal for chicken tenders for years but the seasoning and egg took this to another level for me. Love love! Toddler loved it too!
