Sesame Chicken Strips
Growing up I loved these crispy sesame chicken tenders from a local take-out place in New York called Zorns. We have finally created a sesame chicken strip recipe that lives up the favorite chicken I grew up loving! They are crispy, packed with nutrients from flax, nuts, and sesame seeds, and are SO good!

Crispy Sesame Chicken Tenders
For Sesame Chicken
- 1 lb. organic boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips or bite size pieces
- 1 egg
- 1/4 tsp water
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1/3 cup ground flax meal
- 4 tablespoons white sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2-3 tablespoons oil for frying (I like avocado oil for high heat cooking)
- In a medium mixing bowl combine almond flour, ground flax meal, sesame seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, and ground black pepper.
- In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together egg and water.
- Pat chicken dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper.
- Dip sliced chicken breasts into the egg, then dredge in flour mixture. Repeat until all chicken is coated.
- In a large skillet, heat oil for 2-3 minutes until hot.
- Place chicken in the skillet, in batches, and let fry for 3-4 minutes on each side depending on how thick your chicken is. Cook until chicken is crispy and golden-brown, but juicy in the center. Place on towel to drain excess oil.
- Serve chicken immediately with dipping sauce, or cool and pack separately for meal prep.
