Number of Servings: 4


    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
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    2 egg whites (see Ingredient note)
    1 pound chicken tenders (cut in strips or chunks)


1. Preheat oven to 475°F. Set a wire rack on a foil-lined baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
2. Place almonds, flour, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard 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, 20 to 25 minutes.
