Baked Coconut Chicken Tenders

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner, which means it's a great time to bake instead of fry!  These chicken tenders are perfectly crispy (you won't notice that they aren't fried), both sweet and savory (the flavors are crazy yummy!), and pair well with a Thai sweet chili sauce.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!


Baked Coconut Chicken Tenders
Recipe adapted from: 

Serves 2-4

8-10 chicken tenderloins

1/2 c. panko bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
1.  Sprinkle the chicken tenders with all-purpose seasoning.

This looks delicious. Coconut and chicken pair beautifully. Your Foodie Friday link went back to my blog, so I repaired it so visitors can find this great recipe. I tested it, so it works. Whew! I'm so sorry for the confusion! When the Inlinkz box pops up and asks for the URL, you should add your blog address (the address for your current post). If you have any questions, or if I can help in any way, please let me know!

For example, this is the address you would enter into Inlinkz.
You would only need to insert a link to Foodie Friday somewhere in your post.

Foodie Friday will host its 4th anniversary on April 11th. Hope to see you there!
