Low Carb Heroin Chicken Tenders

Heroin Wings are a very popular Dana Carpenter Chicken Wing Recipe that has been around the low carb circuit for quite some time. They are called Heroin wings – cause one bite and they are addictive!

I have changed the wing recipe here to use it for baked chicken tenders.  Everyone enjoyed these in my house; young and old.  I even got a request to add these to our “regular dinner rotation.”

This recipe only has a trace amount of carbs in it.

Serves 4
You can 1/2 or double this recipe as needed

Ingredients:
2 pounds of chicken tenders
1 cup of grated parmesan cheese
2 Tablespoons of dried parsley
1 Tablespoon of dried oregano
2 teaspoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of salt (this recipe is quite salty, which I like, but you can reduce or omit the salt here to your taste).
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 cup of melted butter  (I replaced the butter with melted coconut oil when I made this for added flavor and health benefits).

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients together (except for the butter/oil)
Dip the tenders in the butter or oil and roll them in the cheese/spice mixture
Place the tenders on a baking sheet lined with foil or a silicone baking sheet and cook for 30 minutes or until fully cooked. 

Tips:
You can use this same recipe for chicken wings using the same cook temperature and time

  1. Hi, Really enjoying your recipes. Is there any way to print a recipe for use in my kitchen without all the webpage details?
    Thanks

    • Hi! Click or hover over the share+ button on the bottom of the post – that will give you a print friendly option. Thanks

      • When you say “only traces of carbs ” in this dish, would that be less than 1 or 2?

        • Christine says:

          It would all depend on exactly how much breading you had per piece. Calculating carbs when there are variables like that cannot be exact, but I would say less than 1, but that is just my honest best guest.

  2. Can I use this rub for shrimp?
