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

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).

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. 

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?

    • 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?
