Sticky It To Me: Body SymmetryMD 's Sticky Sweet & Spicy Paleo Chicken

Put a twist of the Far East on your chicken dinner tonight with this great new stick-to-your-ribs recipe from our Body SymmetryMD wellness squad. 

It's high in protein, low in carbs, Paleo -friendly and most of all, big on flavor!

Sticky Sweet & Spicy Paleo Chicken
-1 large head of cauliflower (for the coating) 
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
- 2 eggs
- 1 lb. chicken tenders
¼ cup maple syrup
- ⅓ cup hot sauce 
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Cauliflower Crumbs:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
2. Rice the florets of the cauliflower, using a grater or in food processor.
3. Spread out on a non-stick baking sheet (do not apply thick, because the cauliflower needs plenty of room to breathe).
4. Bake for approximately 1 hour, turning about every ten minutes so the tiny bits don't burn. The cauliflower should just lightly brown and dry out considerably.

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place the cauliflower crumbs, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper into a bowl and stir it together. Place the eggs in another bowl with a splash of water and whisk them.
3. Dip the chicken tenders, one at a time, into the flour then into the egg then into the flour again. 
4. Lay the chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the chicken for 25 minutes, or until it is crispy and beginning to golden brown.
5. While the chicken is baking prepare the sauce. In a small frying pan over high heat bring the honey, hot sauce and garlic powder to a boil then set it aside.
6. When the chicken has finished baking remove it from the oven and turn the oven to broil. Dip each of the chicken tenders in the sauce then lay them back on the baking sheet. Save the extra sauce.
7. Put the chicken back in the oven for 5 minutes for the glaze to caramelize slightly.
8. Baste the chicken with any extra sauce one they come out of the oven. Serve immediately and enjoy eating Paleo -friendly (makes 4 servings)!
