1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven at 475°F and line a baking sheet with foil. Slightly grease the foil with oil or coat it with cooking spray. Place a wire rack on the tray and lightly coat it with oil as well.
Next, combine the almonds, flour, paprika, garlic powder, dry mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Gradually add the olive oil. Process it for one minute or until the almonds are finely chopped and all the ingredients are well combined. Transfer the almond mixture to a shallow dish.

Put the coated chicken strips on the prepared wire rack. Bake the chicken fingers for 20-30 minutes or until it becomes golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven and move the cooked chicken on a serving platter. Serve immediately.
