If using the oven, preheat to 400F. If using an air-fryer, skip this step.
In one bowl, place the raw egg and scramble with a fork.
In a second bowl, place the almond flour, salt, ground pepper, garlic powder and paprika.
Dip each bite-size chicken piece into the dry ingredient bowl, then into the egg (make sure to brush off the excess), then back into the dry ingredients.
If using the oven, lay out in a single layer on a baking sheet with a wire rack on top. If using an air fryer, spray the air fryer basket with nonstick spray, and place each piece into the basket in a single layer. Do not lay pieces on top of one another. If needed, air fry a second batch after. Spray with another layer of nonstick spray.
If using the oven, place into the oven and cook for 12-14 minutes. If using the air fryer, turn it on to 400F and cook for 8 minutes, making sure to shake halfway through. Ensure that the internal temperature reaches 165F before serving.
These are best served immediately with your favorite dip. However, you can make them ahead and then toss back into the air fryer for 5 minutes when ready to consume.
