There isn’t a meal that reminds me of my childhood more than chicken fingers and fries. That was basically a main food group for me back then. And honestly, I wouldn’t mind too much if it was now! I could eat these easy chicken tenders all the time and don’t get me started on my love for sweet potatoes. They are good any time of the day.

Paired with some dipping sauces, this meal is super family friendly. Dipping sauces make everything better. Some of my favorites are this ketchup and this barbecue sauce. Both are unsweetened so they don’t have a ton of added sugar. Sauces can be sneaky about adding in sugar so I always try to check beforehand to see how much is in a container. Not that added sugar is the worst thing ever but I like knowing what is in what I’m eating!

Recipe Steps:

The first thing you need to do is make the sweet potato fries. A tip is if your sweet potato is too tough to cut into, microwave it for a few minutes to soften it a bit. Then coat with the olive oil and salt & pepper. Add to a pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 15 minutes.

While the sweet potatoes cook, it’s time to make the chicken tenders. You’ll mix the coconut flour and spices in a shallow bowl. Then whisk the egg in another bowl. Dip the chicken tenders in the egg the dip it in the flour mixture. Repeat for each chicken tender.
