These boneless chicken strips really taste like traditional wings. And that’s a good thing! Really – who doesn’t like hot wings? What’s also nice is this recipe is grain free; can’t even tell that the breading is almond meal; and if making for kids (they’ll love them too!), you can swap the hot sauce for a low sugar BBQ sauce. So make these for your next afternoon of watching TV and use the leftovers for lunch the next day! Servings: 4
Here’s what you need:
4 x 3 oz raw chicken breasts, cut into strips
1/2 cup almond meal (ground up raw almonds)
1 tsp garlic powder (not garlic salt)
1/2 tsp pepper
1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot sauce (original)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a shallow bowl, mix together almond meal, garlic powder and pepper.
- Place raw chicken in mixture to coat.
- Place in oven proof dish or cookie sheet. I lined mine with parchment so it didn’t stick.
- Mist ‘breaded’ chicken with oil or cooking spray. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes until golden (turning halfway through).
- Meanwhile, place hot sauce in larger bowl. Remove chicken strips from oven.
- While still hot, lightly dunk in hot sauce using tongs.
- Try serving with a spinach salad and a side of light ranch dressing (not included in nutrition).
