Gluten-Free Fried Chicken Tenders

Hey there! Happy Tuesday!!!

These chicken tenders are seriously SO good!! I made these chicken tenders for lunch for my brother and I one day. After we tried them, we both said, "these are amazing!" They are crispy, tender, and full of delicious flavors! These chicken tenders are the best, you won't be able to tell that they are gluten-free and dairy-free! 

I used many spices in the flour blend I made, including; paprika, garlic, cayenne, mustard, and more! I fried the chicken tenders in coconut oil, which is a very healthy oil to use! The coconut oil doesn't give the fried chicken tenders any coconut flavor.

Let's get to cooking!

Gluten-Free Fried Chicken Tenders

  • 1 lb chicken breasts, sliced into strips
  • 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil, to fry
Add sliced chicken strips into a bowl with coconut milk. Let marinate for about 1 hour.

Whisk together flour, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, mustard powder, salt, and pepper in large bowl. Heat coconut oil in a large pan. Once oil is melted and starting to get hot, toss sliced chicken strips in flour blend and place in pan. Fry for about 6 minutes per side, or until chicken is fully cooked. 

Once chicken strips are golden and crispy, remove from pan and place on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Enjoy!!!
