Sweet & Spicy Paleo Chicken

500 gms tender chicken breasts
2 1/4 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 eggs
1/4 cup corn flour
3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup hot chilli sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
for the garnish
1 tsp chopped parsley
yoghurt or sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees celsius.
  • In a bowl mix together the almond flour, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • In another bowl whisk the eggs together along with 2-3 tbsp water.
  • Beat the chicken tenders(you can make them into smaller pieces i.e one chicken breast can be cut into two pieces) with a kitchen hammer lightly.
  • Now dip each chicken tender in the corn flour, then in the whisked eggs and then in the mixed almond flour. Place the coated chicken tenders on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or the chicken starts to turn crispy.
  • In the meantime, start preparing the sauce. In a saucepan mix together the honey, hot sauce and garlic powder. Bring this to a boil over a high flame and keep it aside.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and dip each tender in the sauce.
  • Heat a non stick pan, place the chicken tenders and roast for a few minutes(2-5) on one side, then turn over and roast the other side of each chicken tender, so as to allow the sauce to caramelize on the chicken pieces.
  • Transfer onto a serving plate. Drizzle any remaining sauce on the chicken tenders.
  • Garnish with dollops of yoghurt or sour cream and chopped parsley leaves.


  1. Any reason why it is called paleo chicken? Whatever said, looks delicious...

    1. Thanks Rafee, paleo diet is one which avoids diary products, processed food and uses more of nuts,natural sweetners, lean meat etc. Here almond flour is used rather than the usual bread crumbs and honey is used too. Its considered a healthier option.
