Almond Chicken Bake

I got this recipe from my friend Heather, way back when I was first looking for good Paleo recipes. It’s high in protein, gluten-free, and the whole family loves it.


  • 2 lbs chicken breast tenderloins
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup almond meal (or nut flour)
  • 2 tbs chili powder
  • 1 tbs Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400º. Line a 13 x 9″ baking pan with foil and grease it.

Mix all dry ingredients on a plate. Beat eggs in a shallow dish. Dip chicken in egg and then dredge in dry ingredients. Place coated meat into baking dish and bake for 7 minutes each side.

  1. I made this last night as well! It was really good. I made it a little crispier by putting the chicken under the broiler for the last 4-5 mins. This made a big difference in the crispiness! I also linked to you from my blog! :)

  2. Just made these for dinner!! The flavor was amazing and they turned out perfect. I used an egg/almond milk dip for the chicken to give it some extra moisture. Thanks for the recipe!!

  3. Made this tonight and the family loved it! I loved how simple it was and the just exact amount of spice. I also, broiled mine for the last two minutes so it got crunchy! Thanks for the recipe!! It’s a keeper! :)

  4. I made this tonight and it was delicious! Perfect spice and the chicken was so moist and tender. I broiled the chicken for the last 4-5 minutes and it was perfect!

  5. Made this tonight for the family…very good!! Made my own almond meal. I split 4 breasts in half. Used 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites to make it healthier. Even with 8 halves I’ll use less egg next time as I found there was too much left. We all really enjoyed this and will make again. Thank you!

  6. Yum! This recipe is one of the best paleo chicken recipes I’ve tried. I made it twice this week because it’s so quick and easy. Ate it with hot sauce. Delicious and thanks for sharing.

  11. I made these tonight (without the chili powder or cayenne) and my six year old called them “the goodest food EVER.” Broiled them at the end per another suggestion for 3 minutes and they were crunchy and so flavorful. Easy, healthy, tasty: this recipe is a keeper.
