How to Make Paleo Chicken Strips

Chicken strips are ready within 30 minutes, quickly assembled and cooked, and of course, family-approved. 

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine tapioca flour, shredded coconut, paprika, black pepper, and sea salt.

3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg.

Tip: No egg on hand or wanting an allergy-free option? Coat chicken in BBQ Sauce before tossing into the tapioca flour coating.

4. Place chicken tenders (one at a time) into the whisked egg while letting any access egg to drip off and transfer to flour mixture. Coat all sides of the chicken generously and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Continue this step until all chicken has been coated.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is oblique in the center and no longer pink.

Tip: Dip chicken nuggets into your favorite dipping sauce and serve with one of my favorite Paleo dishes!

How to Source the Best Chicken

For most of us hunting down or raising our own chicken is out of the question, so the next best option is purchasing locally pastured raised chickens. You can typically find pastured raised chickens at farmer’s markets, co-ops, local farms, and butchers.

How to Store Paleo Chicken Strips

These chicken strips take a bit more prep work than preheating than the oven. You can easily double or triple the recipe and store in the fridge (cooked) up to 3 to 5 days for quick lunches.

Tip: Leftover chicken strips are excellent cut up and topped over a fresh leafy green salad!

Or store cooked chicken strips in a freezer-safe airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Preheat the oven to 350 and cook frozen for 10 to 15 minutes or until strips are cooked thoroughly.

Essential Equipment to Make Paleo Chicken Strips

Baking Sheet – I love my baking sheets, there is plenty of room and they are easy to clean. (Especially when topped with parchment paper).
