  • Step 1

    In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown mustard with a fork. Set this aside.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    In a second bowl, combine the parmesan, almond flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Set this aside as well.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    If you need to, slice chicken breast into tenders. If your tenders are pre-cut, lay them flat and ready for cooking.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    *Heat the grapeseed oil in a large skillet on high heat. When the oil is hot, dip each chicken tender into the egg mixture first and then the dry mixture. Place the chicken strips in the skillet for frying. Cook each chicken strip for approximately 5 minutes per side. The tenders will naturally release from the pan when they’re cooked.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Lay the cooked chicken strips on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.

        Everything stuck to my skillet. Dinner was ruined. I wish I had known not to use a stainless steel skillet.

                      Could these be cooked in an Air Fryer to remove the oil and mess?

                        recipewriter 5 years ago

                        Yes. Since not everyone's appliances are the same, you'll need to follow the cooking directions for your air fryer.

                      Giant fail - most of the crumbing stuck to the pan and didn’t stick

                        What about using avocado oil, I thought that has the highest smoke point and is the most keto friendly?

                          Don't fry with coconu oil. It has too low of a smoke point.

                          recipewriter 5 years ago

                          Avocado oil is an excellent substitute here! Olive oil and coconut oil are also appropriate substitutes. Hope this helps!

                        Is it ok to use vegetable/canola oil instead of grapeseed oil? How much will that affect the nutritional value?

                          Jenny 9 months ago

                          Canola/vegetable oil is not Keto

                        • recipewriter

                          recipewriter 5 years ago

                          You may use vegetable oil here. Grapeseed oil has healthier fats and a higher smoke point, so it's better for frying. However, using vegetable oil should not change your macros. The healthiest oil to use here would be olive oil, but this is usually more difficult to fry with, since it has a lower smoke point. Hope this information was helpful!
