I've been meaning to get this recipe up for awhile now, but the truth is I've been working my butt off completing a huge project.  I can hardly handle the 100+ recipes I've been holding out on for so long! Some of you have my first 2 ebooks...well this one will be nothing like them!  The recipes are developed and I'm in the design and photography phases and seriously so excited!  

You guys loved my pizza chicken, so I figured you'd love this too!  This recipe is such an easy weeknight dinner and my kids love it.  It totally takes care of a pizza hankering.  Add some red pepper flakes if there are no children involved to really kick it up a notch! Don't forget to tag me on instagram when you make it, I love seeing you guys use my recipes!  

Pepperoni Pizza Chicken Fingers

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 15-20 mins


1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into tenders 
2.5 oz pepperoni, chopped or sliced into very thin strips
1 cup almond flour 
1/4 cup arrowroot starch
1 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder 
1 tsp onion powder 
1 1/2 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 egg
1/2 cup marinara sauce, for dipping


Preheat oven to 400F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spray parchment paper with cooking oil.  

In a shallow mixing dish, combine all "breading" ingredients.

Whisk egg in a small bowl.

Dredge chicken pieces through egg, then bread with breading mixture, pressing pepperoni pieces on as they fall off.

Place breaded chicken on parchment lined baking sheet.  

Spray the top of chicken with cooking oil.  

Bake in preheated oven for  15-20 minutes, until chicken is cooked and golden.  Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
