Low Calorie – Almond Crusted Chicken Fingers

Almond Crusted Chicken Finger

Instead of  high calorie fried nuggets, you can coat chicken tenders in a seasoned almond and whole-wheat flour crust and then oven-fry them for a perfection diet choice. With half the fat of standard breaded chicken tenders, you can easily incorporate this tasty meal into your weight loss plan.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 large egg whites
1 pound chicken tenders

Directions:

Step 1
Preheat oven to 475°F. Line a baking sheet with foil and brush on a little olive oil.

Step 2
Place almonds, flour, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor; process until the almonds are finely chopped and the paprika is mixed throughout, about 1 minute. With the motor running, drizzle in oil; process until combined. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish.

Step 3
Whisk egg whites in a second shallow dish. Add chicken tenders and turn to coat. Transfer each tender to the almond mixture; turn to coat evenly. (Discard any remaining egg white and almond mixture.) Place the tenders on the foiled pan.

Step 4
Bake the chicken fingers until golden brown, crispy and no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.
