Mediterranean Chicken Tenderloins – Healthy and Delicious
Mediterranean chicken tenderloins is a simple, delicious, and healthy recipe. Made with a easy combination of homemade Mediterranean spice, chicken, and almond flour, the taste is to die for. I always serve mine up with a Greek salad and some tzatziki sauce for dipping. As I always say, your family and friends will simply love it. It is a must for a Mediterranean diet.
As always, there are a few tips to making the recipe. You don’t really have to use tenderloins, i just like the cut. Instead, you can use boneless, skinless breasts cut into cubes. I would not use skin on chicken, however. There is just too much fat involved.
You can buy the Mediterranean seasoning in a large grocery or departments store. Or you can make your own with a few spices you will probably have in your pantry. I like making my own, as I can control the spices that go into it and add and delete as I wish.
