…..and they are baked not fried!!
These are so easy and just as good as the kind you get in a restaurant but without the extra grease and calories!
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders (or more depending on how many you are feeding)
1 C. panko bread crumbs
1 C. coconut flakes
1 egg beaten
Mix the panko and coconut in a shallow bowl.
Beat the egg in another shallow bowl
Pour more panko and coconut into a large storage container. This will help absorb any moisture. Do the same on the wax paper between the layers.
Dip each chicken strip in egg then panko/coconut mixture.
Use tongs so your hands stay clean.
Store in container with lid until ready to cook.
Always use wax paper between layers.
Bake in 400 degree oven (I used my new baking rack) for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Make a sweet dipping sauce of 1 C. orange marmalade and 1/4 C honey. Warm in microwave.
If you do not like coconut, try these anyway. My neighbors do not like coconut but they loved these!!
