Buffalo Chicken Tenders (low-carb, keto)

One of the few "bad" foods that still tempts me to this day is a spicy chicken sandwich from Chick-fil-a...

These chicken tenders are almost spot on in terms of flavor, without the bread of course! Just enough crunch, the perfect amount of heat, and soooo tender and juicy. Not only are these a great low-carb option, they are low calorie too! So go ahead and double up... or triple.. or eat all six servings. I'm not here to judge!


  • 1 1/2 Pound Chicken Tenderloin (or breasts cut into strips)
  • 1 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Cup + 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce, divided
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tbsp Butter, melted


1. Preheat oven to 425°F
2. Mix almond flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder
3. Mix egg, heavy cream, and 1 Tbsp hot sauce in a separate bowl
4. Line a baking sheet with foil and/or a baking rack
5. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then into "breading"
6. Place "breaded" chicken tenders on baking sheet
7. Bake for 20 minutes
8. While chicken cooking, mix melted butter and 1 cup hot sauce
9. Remove chicken from oven, drizzle/coat tenders with butter and hot sauce mixture
10. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (broil briefly to crisp up tenders if desired)
11. Serve!
