Baked Turkey Tenders
{gluten/dairy/soy/corn/potato/tomato/egg/coconut free}

Not being able to eat chicken, eggs, gluten, or dairy makes it pretty tough to enjoy a dippable chicken tender or chicken nugget these days. I used to make really yummy chicken tenders using panko, eggs, milk, and seasoning. Since all of those ingredients are a no-go for me these days, I wanted to try making something similar, and wow – they taste 95% the same! The turkey tenders are kid-friendly, and safe for so many different diets (Paleo, SCD, Candida, Low Carb, etc). I actually couldn’t even tell the difference between the turkey and chicken. I guess that could be because I haven’t had chicken in over a year, but regardless, the turkey tenders are good. Plus they turned out crispy, which makes them even better!

This recipes makes a large baking sheet full of tenders.

2lbs turkey (I used turkey breasts.)
3 cups blanched almond flour
3/4 cup almond milk
3 flax eggs (3 tablespoons ground flaxseed mixed with 9 tablespoons water, or just use 3 eggs.)
3 tablespoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons black pepper
3 tablespoons ground mustard
3 tablespoons parsley

Let me preface the directions by giving some quick tips. I had my cut up turkey tenders on one plate. I had my milk and flax eggs in a bowl. And, I divided my almond flour and seasoning mixture into 3 batches. I put one batch onto a plate at a time because I couldn’t fit all of that almond flour onto one plate.

Making It:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Slice the turkey into strips and set aside.
  4. In a bowl, make the flax eggs, and once the mixture has thickened, add in the almond milk.
  5. On a plate or bowl, or whatever else you would like to use, mix the almond flour and seasoning.
  6. Dip each turkey slice into the milk/flax mixture, making sure that it’s fully coated. Then dip it into the almond flour mixture, once again making sure that it’s fully coated.
  7. Shake off any excess, then place it on the baking sheet. Continue this process until you are done with the turkey.
  8. Bake for about 25 minutes (or until cooked through), then broil for about 10 minutes (or until golden brown).
