Paleo Chicken Fingers

Sunday, February 09, 2014 Alanna Figueira 3 Comments

I'm currently on day 9 of my third whole30.  I did my first back in August while I was pregnant with my daughter and my second in January, when she was just 3 months old.  As a nursing mother, the effects this way of eating has had on my milk supply and overall mood of my baby and myself is what has kept me going on past the 30 days.  I hope to soon write a post comparing my two pregnancies- one was vegetarian and one was paleo! Can you believe that? I will tell you this- I had medical complications with my first and I gained a whopping 60lbs.  With my paleo pregnancy I had none of the issues from the first, gained 25lbs and birthed (both naturally) a bigger baby! And lost it almost immediatley. But this is a whole'nother story.


These are so easy to make and my son loves them.  I like to use the stir fry cut pieces because it's so easy and they are perfect for little hands. 


1 lb boneless skinless chicken
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup arrowroot starch
1 1arge egg
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp italian seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder


1.  Preheat oven to 350F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Oil the parchment paper.

2.  Mix the almond flour, arrowroot, and all of the spices together in a shallow pan.

3.  Beat the egg.

4.  Dredge the chicken through the egg, then batter with almond flour breading.

5.  Transfer breaded chicken to cookie sheet.  Spray the top of the chicken with cooking oil. 

6.  Bake for 20-25 mins, flipping half way through.  Cooking time will vary based on thickness of chicken.
