INGREDIENTS

  • Canola oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 pound chicken tenders

PREPARATION

  • Line a baking sheet with foil and Preheat oven to 475°F.
  • Set a wire rack on the baking sheet and coat it with cooking spray.
  • Put almonds, flour, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor; process until the almonds are finely chopped and the paprika is mixed throughout, about 1 minute. With the motor running, drizzle in oil; process until combined.
  • Put the mixture to a shallow dish.
  • Whisk egg whites in a second shallow dish.
  • Add chicken tenders and turn to coat. Transfer each tender to the almond mixture; turn to coat evenly. (Discard any remaining egg white and almond mixture.) Place the tenders on the prepared rack and coat with cooking spray; turn and spray the other side.
  • Bake the chicken fingers until golden brown, crispy and no longer pink in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.
