1 lb chicken tenderloins
1 and 1/2 - 2 cups blanched almond flour - an estimate use more if not sure
1 tsp fine grain sea salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 egg whisked
1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil for frying - you might need a bit more as you fry
First, cut the chicken tenderloins into 1-2 inch bites sized pieces and set aside
In a shallow dish, combine the almond flour, salt, smoked paprika, onion powder, and black pepper and mix well to combine the flavors
In another shallow dish, whisk the egg. Heat a large cast iron pan over medium heat and add the coconut oil or ghee. Before adding the chicken, make sure the oil is hot enough by dropping a bit of almond flour in the pan to see if it sizzles.
