These easy, crispy baked chicken tenders are covered in chickpea crumbs rather than breadcrumbs, for a higher fiber, lower carb delicious meal! They are the perfect blend of crispy, flavorful coating and a moist, delicious inside. Served with my favorite Ellyndale Q Cups. A healthy yet tasty alternative to fast food. Pair with your favorite dipping sauce!
