Crispy Coconut Chicken Tenders

Chicken Tenders are something that you will always find in my shopping cart at Costco. They are priced right, individually frozen so it's easy to get out just what I need and they are tasty. What's not to love?  I am always looking for new and different ways to cook my tenders.

I was making my menu last week and had pinned a Crispy Coconut Tenders. It looked delicious and it was baked--it was actually on a 'skinny' blog! I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried them. I'm so glad I did because they were delicious The coconut added sweetness, the corn flakes and Panko added crunch. I made a yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce--recipe tomorrow. It is so good it needs it's own post! Put these Crispy Coconut Tenders on your menu. Oh and they are quick--really a 30 minute meal.

Coconut Chicken Tenders
9 chicken tenders--thawed
8 tablespoons coconut
6 tablespoons Panko crumbs
4 tablespoons cornflake crumbs
1 egg, beaten with a splash of milk
Mix the coconut, Panko crumbs and cornflake crumbs in a shallow dish. Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Dip tenders in egg mixture and then roll in crumb mixture. Place on a bar pan that has a drizzle of olive oil. Spray tenders lightly with olive oil spray. Bake at 400 for about 18 minutes or until cooked through. Don't over cook! Serve with Honey Mustard Sauce. Inspired by a recipe on Skinny Taste.

Good Morning...I have a question, not about your receipe today but about Thai Coconut Chicken said to serve over sticky rice..silly question but when you buy rice how do you know it is sticky rice...I love sticky rice, but have never purchased any..And I have not noticed any that says sticky rice on
