Breaded Chicken Tenders with Gravy

Hey beautiful people!

Tonight for dinner, I was craving fried chicken, but instead of fried we ( my boyfriend and I) did baked chicken. I know he likes his pan gravy/sauces, so I decided to make a version of southern gravy. As for a vegetable, we just cooked some asparagus with mashed taters on the side too!

Ingredients
Chicken
1 package chicken breast tenders ( about 10 tenders)
2 eggs
2 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Gravy
4-5 tablespoons bacon grease*
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 cup milk
1/2-1 cup chicken broth
1-2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Directions
Preheat oven 350°F
* In a large non stick skillet, cook 6-8 slices of bacon, take out bacon and keep the grease for the southern gravy. Go ahead and eat that bacon as a snack!
Don’t start making the gravy till the chicken is almost done. It will thicken as it sits.

You will need two ( 2) pie plates.
In the first pie plate crack two eggs and scramble them. ( This will be the  wet coating for the chicken)
In the second pie plate, add almond flour, oregano, garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper and stir to combined.
Open the package of chicken tenders, drench the pieces in the egg, and then in the flour mixture. Place on greased cookie sheet.
Bake 15-20 minutes.
When 5 minutes remain on the chicken, go ahead and start the gravy.
Heat up the bacon grease, and whisk in flour. Once combined it should look like thick gooey mixture(* rue).
Whisk in milk and spices. Season to liking and add in chicken broth.
Heat through.

Serve chicken and gravy along side so yummy potatoes and vegetables!
