    I'm pretty big into healthy eating, but I'll admit I still crave and occasionally eat unhealthy stuff too. Chicken tenders are one of those things that are just too good to give up in my opinion, so when I was researching new recipes to try out, I came across this one. It's a really simple recipe for homemade chicken tenders and instead of traditional breading, you use raw almonds that you grind up in a food processor:

    The embed isn't working for some reason, but you can watch it here (there's also a ton of good info on healthy eating at his blog and lots of recipes too): http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-almond-chicken/#axzz2KNh4pN8D

    I just got done eating them and they were phenomenal. Very simple to make too. Just grind some raw almonds in a food processor just enough to where they are powdery but still have chunks in them, cut some chicken breast or thighs into smaller strips, coat them with egg, then dip in the almonds and cook them in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 350 degrees. The guy in the video just used a regular pan, but I cooked mine in a glass pan with foil over the top and I flipped mine over after 20 minutes then cooked for another 20-25. Came out crispy on the outside but nice and tender on the inside.

    I also threw some sea salt, black pepper, seasoning, and a little bit of cayenne pepper on them before cooking.

    Let us all know if any of you try it and what you thought!

    Yeah, I see a lot of threads from people here asking about how to be healthier while doing IM, and I know one of the hardest parts to it is being able to eat something healthy that actually tastes good. So I figured I'd post something that mimics a food most people enjoy eating but is good for you too.
