These baked chicken tenders are crispy, full of flavor and SO easy to make! Dinner is ready in less than 30 minutes and everyone will be happy! Gluten-Free, Paleo, Low Carb


We cracked the code to make these delicious keto chicken tenders (also known as chicken fingers, chicken goujons, or chicken strips). They are perfect for a snack or for a full lunch.
This mouthwatering low carb fried chicken will make your friends and family love you. They won’t even know that it’s low carb.

When I made these I made a non-spicy version for my nephew and a spicy version for the adults, so I’ve included both below.



Both versions got demolished by the family and they loved how easy they were to whip up, it’s basically a homemade shake and bake version for chicken fingers!  I have a feeling this one is going to become a regular on our meal rotation!
