  • 8 Chicken tenders
  • 2 Beaten eggs
  • 24 oz Jar of pickles Just the juice is required
  • 3/4 cup Almond Flour
  • Coconut oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Pork Rind
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper


  • You can marinate the chicken tenders along with the pickle juice overnight but if not, make sure you do so for at least an hour.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix almond flour, salt and pepper or whizz the ingredients in your food processor for a short burst.
  • Create a line of three bowls, one with almond flour mixture, the second with the beaten eggs and the third with the pork rinds, try pork panko for this.
  • Trawl the chicken meat through the almond flour mixture, then through the beaten egg and finally in the pork panko until the chicken is well coated all over.
  • Fill a saute pan about 2 inches in depth with healthy coconut oil and put on medium high heat, to about 350 F.
  • Once the oil is piping hot place your chicken tenders in the coconut oil and cook robustly for around 3 minutes on each side, turning until they appear a rich golden brown. The cooking time will vary depending on the meaty thickness of your chicken tenders and the pan that you are using.
