I’m into making my own almond milk, so I always have leftover almond pulp. I have two different kinds of energy balls in my freezer right now, so I wanted to do something different. I decided on using the dried almond meal as a crust to make some chicken tenders.
Look at that goodness right down there.
Almond Crusted Chicken Strips
1 cup – almond meal*
1/3 cup – parmesan cheese
- Whisk all ingredients together.
- Thoroughly coat chicken strips.
- In a large cast iron skillet, add coconut oil (enough to cover the whole pan) and bring to high-med/high heat.
- Sear chicken on each side, about 3 minutes each.
Homemade Ranch Dressing
I’m about to leave on a road trip, so I don’t have a ton of things on hand, so I had to improvise.
1/4 cup – plain keifer
1 tbsp – mayo (I would prefer to use avocado mayo, but I didn’t have any on hand, so I used Hellman’s)
1 tsp – minced garlic
Dried Minced onion
(I didn’t have any chives, but I’d typically add that as well)
Simply mix and adjust to your liking!
Cheers! Let me know what you think!
