We love a nutritious twist on classic recipes. Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes serve as a crispy and delicious gluten-free breading for chicken tenders in this recipe by @srslydelicious.

Total Time: 20


  • 1.5 cups Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 lb chicken tenders or strips (you can also use chicken breast and cut into strips yourself)
  • 1 tsp each of salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder (more if you like a little kick!)


  1. In a bowl mix Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper and chili powder. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl whisk 2 eggs.
  3. Bread chicken tenders by coating them evenly in egg first and then covering them in the quinoa flake mixture. Set each strip aside.
  4. In a pan, heat ¼ cup avocado oil on medium high heat.

  6. Cook the chicken tenders 3-4 minute each side until browned and crispy.
  7. Let rest on a paper towel and transfer to a cooling rack.
  8. Dunk in ketchup and enjoy!
