Coconut Breaded Chicken Tenders

Heat about 1/4 cup of Macadamia Nut Oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, beat the egg white with a fork until frothy.

Put the coconut flour and almond flour in another shallow bowl; mix well. Place all of the chicken tenders in the egg white and toss with your fingers to coat them well. One at a time, roll the tenders in the coconut/almond flour. Shaking off any excess flour, place the tenders on a small baking sheet or plate. Sprinkle with Spike Seasoning or Mrs. Dash on both sides.

When the oil is hot, gently put all of the chicken tenders in the pan. Flip them over when the first side is nicely browned. Be gentle so that the coating doesn't come off. The chicken should be done on the inside by the time the coating has browned. They cook very quickly in only a couple minutes per side.

Makes about 3 servings

* You won't use all of the flour so we count only about 1/4 cup in the carb counts.
