Instructions

  1. Place oil in a heavy pan or deep fryer.
  2. Set heat to medium and allow to heat as you prepare the chicken tenders.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of the almond flour with all the seasonings.
  4. Crack the eggs into a second bowl, add the heavy whipping cream and then whisk for 30 seconds.
  5. Dredge the chicken through the almond flour mixture, then the eggs mixture, then repeat through the almond flour.
  6. Do this in 3 batches as the almond flour gets wet and clumpy after a while (more so than all-purpose flour).
  7. When the oil is hot, add 3 pieces of chicken at a time and allow to cook for 4-5 minutes each, until cooked through and golden brown, flipping halfway through.
  8. Remove the chicken to a paper-towel lined plate or tray and repeat with the remaining chicken.
