    This looks fantastic!! I’ve always loved chicken fingers but had to stay away due to the horrible macros they usually have. Thanks for another amazing (easy) recipe!

    One question: have you tried substituting the almond flour for some other flour that has less fat, like coconut flour, for example?

    Amazing! Lovely taste, texture – had them with salad and low-carb-dip. So good!

    These were good when I first made them, but something was missing. Tried frying them in a “healthy” oil and figured out that that’s what was missing. Try frying these in a healthier oil and I promise you they will taste absolutely delicious.

    Just found your website recently. Tried these last night and were awesome. I did not have almond flour so used whole wheat bread crumbs (not sure which is healthier?). Can’t wait to try all your other recipes. Question- after bathing all the chicken in the eggs there was still a good amount of eggs left in the bowl- do you still count all of the calories/macros from the eggs in your overall calculation of nutrition for the meal? Sorry if that is confusing. Thanks again!

    I first want to apologize for my “new to cooking” question but I don’t think I fully understand the serving amounts.

    So for example, this chicken finger recipe has “Calories in each serving (if you make 4)”. Does that mean the macro breakdown is for if you eat 4 total chicken fingers or if you eat 1 chicken finger but a “serving” is 4 chicken fingers (essentially multiplying by 4 if you eat 4)?

    Does that make sense? I want to make sure I am calculating my macros properly before I go off on a tear and find out I am eating 4xs the amount of food I should be. Thanks again for an awesome site and an awesome YouTube channel!

      Haha! No worries Chad. This just means that if you make 4 total servings out of your whole serving that would be the calories, as goes for all of my recipes. Do your best to evenly portion them out (or weigh – my suggestion). The simplest solution if you don’t have a scale is to understand that if you’re eating the entire recipe, at the end of the week you’ll have consumed all of the calories in it so a few extra one day isn’t going to hurt you (you’ll compensate by having less the next or at some point throughout eating the entire recipe).

        Ahhh OK thank you SO much. I’m starting my TPC eating schedule next week and I am VERY excited (to be eating good for that is good for me but also to say peace out belly fat!)

        Keep up the outstanding work! I know running a website and a YT channel is very time consuming – but you have a lot of people that you are helping!

        I also just joined Team TPC!!

        (yes I put a lot of “!” in my post)
