For the chicken tenders and pickles –

  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1/4 cup (28 g) of coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) of almond flour
  • 2 Tablespoons (20 g) of garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 g) of salt
  • 2 teaspoons (4 g) of paprika
  • 4 small pickles, sliced
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into long strips (or equivalent amount of pre-sliced chicken tenders)

For the ranch dipping sauce –

  • 1/4 cup of mayo (60 ml)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon (5 g) garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons fresh dill, finely chopped
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).
  2. Place the whisked egg in a small bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, almond flour, garlic powder, salt, and paprika.
  4. With a paper towel, pat dry each pickle slice. Dip each pickle slice into the whisked egg and then dip into the flour mixture. Place each pickle slice in a single layer on a greased rimmed baking tray.
  5. Dip each chicken tender into the whisked egg and then dip into the flour mixture.  Place the “breaded” chicken tenders in a single layer on a separate baking tray.
  6. Place both baking trays in the oven and bake for 7 minutes. Turn over the chicken tenders and pickle slices and continue to bake for an additional 7 minutes.  Remove the tray with the pickles and keep baking the chicken for another 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the mayo, garlic powder, parsley, and dill. Season with salt, to taste.
  8. Serve the ranch dipping sauce with the baked chicken tenders and pickles.
