Children will love this as finger food. . .
–4 chicken tenderloins (organic)
–crushed almonds (25 to 50 roasted, salted almonds, ground in a food processor)
–extra virgin olive oil
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the chicken tenders in a plastic bag. Season with salt and pepper. Add 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil. Coat the chicken with the olive oil.
2 – Place ground almonds on a large plate. One by one, press the chicken tenders into the crushed almonds. Then place in a covered baking dish. Do not let the chicken tenders touch each other, and do NOT add water.
3 – Microwave for 4 minutes on high. Chicken will be crispy and slightly overcooked, best for finger food.
4 – Serve the chicken almond crunch hot, but it is also good cold, right out of the refrigerator as leftovers.
