Quick & Easy Gluten Free Chicken Tenders

For the time that it takes you to get in the car and drive to the nearest fast-food restaurant to pick up a quick (and not so healthy) meal, you can make your own tasty chicken tenders at home! My gluten free chicken tenders are definitely a hit with my clients and their families as well as a staple recipe in my own weekly meal prep!

My favorite way to serve these:

  • On top of a salad

  • Tacos - one tender per small corn tortilla, topped with lettuce, onion, cilantro, a slice of avocado and salsa

  • For a snack - 2 tenders for women; 4 tenders for men (also great for a post-workout snack with quinoa or sweet potato) *for a condiment, serve with mustard


  • 10 Chicken Strips

  • 1/2 cup, Gluten Free Flour (Bob’s Red Mill is a great one)

  • 1/2 tsp. Paprika

  • 1/4 tsp. Cayenne

  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

  • 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper

  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder

  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil


  1. Mix dry ingredients in bowl, then coat chicken.

  2. Heat coconut oil in a pan on medium heat. Add a chicken strips and cook for 2 to 3 minutes each side.

  3. Turn the heat up to a higher heat and cook an additional 1 minute each side until golden brown.

Store tenders in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
