Recipe Ingredients for Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers

1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 large egg whites
1 pound chicken tenders, (see Ingredient Note)

Recipe Directions for Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers

  1. Preheat oven to 475F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Set a wire rack on the baking sheet and coat it with cooking spray.

  2. Place 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. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish.

  3. 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.

  4. Bake the chicken fingers until golden brown, crispy and no longer pink in the center, about 20 to 25 minutes.
