Step 1

Heat the oil a large pan over medium-high heat (but closer to medium than to high – you don't want the almond flour to burn).

Put the beaten egg in one bowl and the almond flour plus seasonings into another bowl. Dip each chicken finger in egg, then in the almond flour mixture.

Cook the chicken in 2 batches until it is golden
