1/2 cup almond meal

1/2 cup coconut flour

2. In a shallow bowl, combine the eggs, apricot preserves, Dijon, garlic powder (not salt) and sweet paprika.

3. In another shallow bowl, combine the almond flour, almond meal, coconut flour, black pepper, red pepper, and sea salt. Take 1 tablespoon of the dry ingredient mixture and add in to the wet ingredient mixture. Mix well.

4. Rinse the chicken tenders and pat dry. Arrange the bowls next to the chicken, with the prepared pan within reach. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture. Dredge through the flour mixture. Place the coated chicken pieces on the prepared pan.
