5 Ingredient Chicken Strips

The easiest #whole30 5-ingredient chicken strips you probably already have the ingredients for! These are kid-friendly Рboth in flavor and ability to involve the kids in the prep. I make them in a pinch when dinner needs to happen fast. Everyone in our family is on board with these and they keep great in the fridge to chop up for salads or wraps later in the week.

5 Ingredient Chicken Strips


  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 chicken breasts cut into strips or bite sized nuggets


  1. Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil. (If using air fryer, skip this step)
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a large gallon sized ziplock* (*the ziplock keeps it extra kid friendly - just put ingredients in, seal, and let them shake it!).
  3. Put 4-5 chicken strips into the ziplock of dry ingredients, seal, and then shake to toss. Place coated chicken on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Repeat coating process until all chicken strips are coated and on baking sheet.
  5. Cook for 20 minutes in preheated oven, until no longer pink in center. If using air fryer, cook at 360 degrees for 8-15 minutes, length of cooking time varying largely depending on size of strips and how full you load your air fryer basket.
