Cooktop Cove: Keto chicken tenders
By Lindsay Mattison
This is, hands down, one of my favorite keto recipes. It makes me feel so normal when I eat it like I'm not following a diet at all! After all, I've never been on an eating plan that allowed me to eat chicken tenders without feeling guilty as I added up all the points afterward. The best thing about the recipe below? It's super easy to make at home, so you can enjoy these chicken tenders as a snack or as dinner.
You'll be surprised at how well simple parmesan cheese and spices works as the "breading" on chicken tenders. No need to fuss with gluten-free flours or other popular hacks. Just mix up the breading with ingredients you have on hand in the pantry and enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil.
In a large bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
In a small bowl, melt the butter.
