Beat the egg in a bowl. On a separate plate, mix together the almond meal, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken tenderloins in the egg. Shake to remove excess egg, then place in the almond meal mix. Cover completely then set aside on a plate. Repeat the process until all pieces are covered.
In another small bowl, mix together all of the lime aioli ingredients. Set aside.
Heat a deep frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot, add in the coconut oil and melt, allowing the pan to return to temperature. To test if the oil is hot enough for shallow frying, dip a corner of one piece of chicken into the oil. If it sizzles, it is ready.
Carefully place the chicken in the oil, being careful not to overcrowd it in the pan. You may need to cook it in two batches. The oil may spit so take care and use a splatter cover if you have one. Cook the chicken on both sides until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and repeat until all pieces have been cooked.
Serve hot with the lime aioli.
