Look at that moist, flakey chicken.

You could also just have these as is, as they have plenty of flavour going on anyway but everyone loves dipping chicken in sauces, am I right?

Paprika is the hero spice here. I usually use plain paprika, but have also used sweet and smokey paprika for these keto oven baked chicken tenders to add some extra flavour, and they were REALLY yum.
