Almond Crusted Chicken Strips With Homemade Ranch

Happy Saturday!

I’m spending the afternoon reading Orphan Train and listening to LÉON. I highly recommend checking out her cover of Dreams, originally done by Fleetwood Mac.

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.

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
Salt
Dill Weed
Dried Minced onion
Garlic Salt
Pepper
(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!
