Crispy Hemp Seed Crusted Chicken Strips (Paleo, Keto, Whole30)
These Crispy Chicken Strips are the perfect summer meal! They’re crispy, they’re crunchy, easy to make a perfect crowd pleaser.
I love using hemp seeds because they have so many nutritional benefits!
Hemp Seeds are high fiber, protein and omega 3 and 6 fatty acids! They are actually one of the few plant-based sources of all essential fatty acids. I really like cooking with them and NO… eating hemp won’t get you high, and you won’t test positive for THC on a drug test. Hemp hearts do not contain THC and it’s not the same thing as marijuana.
That being said, these crispy hemp seed chicken strips are a great fried chicken option. Nut and dairy free and beautifully golden, this recipe kid approved!

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.
Lay your chicken breasts flat on a cutting board. Place on hand firmly over the breast and use a sharp knife to cut into the chicken horizontally, making two thin cutlets. Repeat with the second breast.
