Eat Well Wednesday
Enjoy, dear Frame Readers!
This is one that both kids and adults will love and it is a wonderful alternative to fried chicken tenders and fast food chicken nuggets.
The chicken is coated with a mixture of almonds, whole wheat pastry flour and spices. You simply coat the chicken, bake in the oven, and there you have it!
Pair them with a side of roasted sweet potatoes and some veggies and you have a perfect well balanced meal that we have everyone saying YUM!!!

- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 teaspoon Pepper
- 1 1/2 teaspoon Olive Oil
- 3 large Egg Whites
- 1lb Chicken Breast Tenders
Step 1: Preheat oven to 475 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Place a wire rack on the baking sheet and spray with cooking oil.
Step 2: Place almonds, whole wheat pastry flour, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in food processor and blend until almonds are finely chopped, about 1 minute.Add in the olive oil while processor is running and blend together until well combined.Transfer almond mixture to a shallow dish.
Step 3: In a bowl, whisk 3 egg whites together and add chicken tenders.
Step 4: Transfer each tender to the almond mixture and coat both sides well.Place breaded chicken onto wire rack.
