Grain-Free Curry Chicken Tenders

Tested out entube curry paste on some veggie curry (recipe soon!) over the weekend with good results. With the leftover almond flour from the curry I decided to give grain-free chicken tenders a try. I've had these once before at a restaurant and found them to be pretty bland, so I figured i'd jazz em up with some entube as well. This is probably one of my favorite recipes in a while.*

Notes: You may not need two full cups of almond flour. I found that the flour begins to clump as you dip the chicken and won't stick anymore, so I continued adding in some fresh flour as that happened. I cooked the chicken in two batches. I added two tablespoons of entube per batch. I also didn't add in all of the olive oil at once, but coated the bottom of the pan and then added more as the tenders cooked and the pan looked a bit dry.
