Crispy Sesame Chicken Fingers

Crispy + Crunchy, perfectly tender baked chicken fingers, that are different in a very GOOD way!

Thanks to the delicious sesame coating and coconut flour, these crispy chicken fingers are naturally gluten-free, which is a GREAT thing for those of us who need to avoid gluten.

We love that these are baked rather than fried making them healthier, AND super easy cleanup!

Bonus Points: These are great for meal prepping (so double your recipe!) because the leftovers make for a good salad topper.

1 cup of sesame seeds is A LOT, so be sure to check out the bulk sections of your grocery store.

➡️ Here are a bunch of great recipes you’ll also love (dips, sauces, & sides for these!) :

Makes about 6 servings


  • 1-1/2 lbs chicken tenders
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsps unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • cooking avocado oil spray


Preheat your oven to 360 degrees f. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs, together with coconut milk, garlic powder and a pinch of sea salt.

In a separate bowl, add coconut flour.

In a third bowl, add sesame seeds.

Season the chicken tenders with sea salt and pepper on both sides, then dip each one into the egg mixture.

Next, dip them into the coconut flour, then egg mixture again and finally dredge them into the sesame seeds, gently pressing to get the seeds to stick on all sides.

Arrange the sesame chicken onto your prepared baking sheet, and lightly spray with avocado oil. Be sure to give them space in between, so that they can crisp up properly.

Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 15-16 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Serve with your favorite dip and enjoy!
