Hot and Spicy Chicken Tenders is a great recipe for watching a big game, tailgating or when you are serving appetizers. It is low carb and gluten free too. I love this for the New Year because if you are watching your weight then this is a great alternative and non one will even realize that you are eating low carb! It is a delicious Keto Friendly Recipe that the whole family will enjoy.
The secret to making these chicken tenders gluten free and low carb is using Pork Rinds as the breading! Crush one bag of pork rinds at a time in your food processor until they are a fine crumb. Place the crumbs in bowl. Next in a separate bowl beat 4 eggs. You will then dip your chicken strips into he eggs and then coat with pork rind crumbs. You can choose how you cook them. You can fry them, use an air fryer or even bake! The choice is yours.
After they are cooked place onto a paper towel to drain any extra grease and layer them into a 9×13 size baking pan. Drizzle your favorite hot sauce on top and broil for 5 minutes to re-crisp. Serve with your favorite blue cheese dressing and celery sticks. This is a recipe that will keep you from missing your traditional breaded chicken tenders on game day. Trust me these are so good you won’t be sad. Plus you are enjoying a low carb food but you still feel like you are getting a gluten filled breaded version.
