COCONUT AND PECAN CRUSTED CHICKEN TENDERS

by -7 views
This is a great alternative to processed chicken tenders, and one that is sure to be a hit with kids! A very simple recipe with only 5 ingredients and little prep time. For any of my Paleo or Gluten Free friends, omit the Panko breadcrumbs and double the amount of pecans. You’ll need a food processor to pulse the coconut and pecans and place the mixture in a small bowl. Use a separate dish to whisk the eggs. Dunk in the egg first, and then transfer the chicken to the bowl with the pecan and coconut mixture. Place the Chicken in a 9×13 baking dish: Bake for 20-22 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked through and the topping is nice and crispy. My kids love dipping these in a peanut sauce, but a honey mustard would also be delicious!
