Gluten Free Chicken Strips Recipe

Chicken Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts

Chicken Dry Mix Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup of ground almonds
  • 1 1/2 cup of organic corn meal
  • 2 ts. of sea salt or a tad more depending on your taste
  • 2 ts. cracked pepper
  • 1 ts. cayenne pepper
  • 2 ts. paprika
  • 2 ts. dried basil
  • 2 ts. dried rosemary

Chicken Wet Mix Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • Juice of one lemon

Chicken Directions:

  1. You want to get out a big piece of parchment paper and lay out the chicken breasts. Cut them in half or thirds and then lay over the rest of the parchment paper.
  2. With a meat pounder or tenderizer you are going to want to pound the chicken until it is it is flattened.
  3. Dip the chicken pieces into the milk/lemon mixture and then dip into the breading. Lay all of the strips in a Pyrex baking pan, I used a 9×13 and also an 8×8 to fit all the pieces.
  4. Drizzle olive oil on the pans before laying the strips and I also drizzle some olive oil on top of the strips before I put them in the oven. Not too much, just a little drizzling to keep it crunchy too.
  5. Bake at 35o degrees for 30-40 minutes depending on how big and thick your chicken pieces are. Mainly just check to see if the chicken is cooked and no longer pink.
  6. Let cool for a few minutes.
