Crispy Sesame Chicken Tenders

Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 15 minutes Total Time 30 minutes Yields 2-4


For Sesame Chicken

  • 1 lb. organic boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips or bite size pieces
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp water
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup ground flax meal 
  • 4 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons oil for frying (I like avocado oil for high heat cooking)


  1. In a medium mixing bowl combine almond flour, ground flax meal, sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, and ground black pepper.
  2. In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and water.
  3. Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper. 
  4. Dip sliced chicken breasts into the egg, then dredge in flour mixture. Repeat until all chicken is coated.
  5. In a large skillet, heat oil for 2-3 minutes until hot.
  6. Place chicken in the skillet, in batches, and let fry for 3-4 minutes on each side depending on how thick your chicken is. Cook until chicken is crispy and golden-brown, but juicy in the center. Place on towel to drain excess oil.
  7. Serve chicken immediately with dipping sauce, or cool and pack separately for meal prep.
