Baked (Extra Tender!) Chicken Tenders 🍗 gluten free & keto


  1. Mary White says:

    This recipe sounds great, but I’m “American”; we didn’t learn grams. Maybe make “American” recipes with lbs/oz.? I know… we’re backward. Or stubborn.

  2. April says:

    By far the BEST Keto fried chicken recipe I’ve ever tried!
    I am keeping this recipe in my arsenal for sure! Thank you!

  3. Susie says:

    Hi Paola, do you have a recipe the Poultry Seasoning. I have all the ingredients but don’t know how much of each I should combine. Thanks

  4. Tania says:

    These are the best chicken tenders ever! I followed the recipe to a T minus the pork rinds because we eat kosher… so slightly less crunchy I imagine… but still so delicious! Is there anything else I could use other than pork rinds? Thank you in advance!

  5. Emma says:

    Hi! Loved this just like I’ve loved everything else I’ve made from your recipes! You’re making this whole keto thing so much yummier! I had a hard time with the crust on the rack side sticking, so I ended up with a half-breaded chicken tender 🙂 I sprayed generously with olive oil first. Any ideas?

  6. Audrey says:

    If I have to buy from a grocery store, do you have a brand of pork rinds that you like? Pork rinds freak me out haha, so I have no clue of what kind to get. Thanks.

    These are ridiculously amazingly good!! Everyone in my family all of whom are non-keto loved them. I’m the only keto person and I am thrilled to be able to finally have a breading recipe that’s keto and crispy!! Better than the redults I used to get with a standard flour and bread crumb recipe. YAY!

  8. Wisknitcat says:

    Hi can I use chicken thigh strips instead of chicken breast for a better keto fat protein ratio? Any adjustments needed in the recipe to keep crisp?

  9. Elizabeth says:

    I made these this evening and they are ridiculously good. These are the best chicken tenders I’ve ever tasted! Excellent recipe – I’ll have to share it with my keto group!

  10. Ceci says:

    These were ridiculously delicious. Better than any chicken tender I’ve had. My husband, who doesn’t do keto, even loves them. For sure making them again. Thanks for the recipe 😁😁😁

  11. Erin says:

    Hi there. Great site. I don’t eat pork. Is there any other possible substitute you can think of to get a crisp? Thanks!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Erin! Check out the fish tacos on the site, they’re lightly fried with whey protein- that’s also a great sub (albeit different) xo!

  12. Amanda says:

    I just made this for my non-keto family, and it was a huge hit. They are easy to make, and deliver a great crunch. Your instructions are clear, and the end result is a delicious dish I plan to put into regular rotation. The overnight marinade is definitely the way to go. Thank you for creating wonderful recipes that keep me inspired and having fun in the kitchen!

  13. Ana Barbara says:

    What kind of sour cream do you use? I find it easily in Baja California but I haven’t found it in Mexico City.

    Thanks for the help!

    • Paola says:

      You have to check out Flor de Alfalfa (also the butter!)- SO GOOD! They sell it in City Market or Green Corner. They’re getting they’re organic license, but overall they have good products (aside from they’re cheese, they’re tasteless) xo!

    • Paola says:

      Hi Beva! In all honesty I haven’t found an equivalent dairy free marinade for these guys (I’m mostly DF too). Keep in mind that eggs aren’t dairy xo!

  14. Martha says:

    And for us not allergy people you can omit the flour! I put the chicharrones in the food and processer and pulverize them! I then use the crushed ones as a coat. Been doing this for years! Chicharrones also come in spicy. No need to add spices. Throw in some sesame seeds!

    • Paola says:

      Definitely can sub the almond flour Martha (it’s also stated in the notes!). The one thing I don’t agree on is buying the spicy chicharrones- they generally have sugars and unwanted additives (plus, spice mixes are ALWAYS better homemade in my opinion!) xo!

    • Paola says:

      Not in my experience (you’re adding spices etc too). The flavor profile compliments the chicken beautifully xo!
