Made this with almond meal instead of WW flour & chicken tenders...was delicious! My kids were pleasantly surprised at just how flavorful they were considering, it's boring healthy stuff haha & baked, not fried. Definitely try it, you'll like it.

Has anyone used regular flour instead of the whole wheat? Somehow that just doesn't sound good on (oven) fried chicken.
