Gluten-Free Chicken Tenders & Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

Gluten-Free Chicken Tenders & Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

Growing up as a picky eater, chicken tenders were one of the few foods I would willingly eat (I pretty much lived off of them until I was 16). Thankfully my taste-buds have evolved, but every now and then I still crave them. These chicken tenders are gluten and dairy-free and a much healthier version of anything you'd order in a restaurant because they use only a few simple ingredients. I love dipping them in the homemade honey mustard sauce which uses Primal Kitchen Paleo Mayo, Dijon mustard and honey.

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, mix 2 eggs and season with salt and pepper.
  4. In another bowl, add gluten-free flour mixture, poultry seasoning, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper and thyme.
  5. Coat the pieces of chicken in the egg mixture and then in flour mixture. Repeat for all pieces of chicken.
  6. In a large pan heat olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, place chicken tenders on the stove until the flour mixture is golden brown (~2 minutes each side).
  7. Place on the baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven.
  9. In a small bowl, mix Primal Kitchen Paleo Mayo, Dijon mustard and honey.
