Coconut Encrusted Chicken Tenders

coconut chicHere is a healthy and delicious way to enjoy chicken the whole family will like. If your kids like chicken fingers, this is a great healthy alternative.

It goes great on salad and also tastes good cold the next day for lunches. Pair it with a good dipping sauce. I personally like the Bolthouse Farms dressings because they are made with yogurt and very low calorie so I served it with the Bolthouse Farms honey mustard. Thank you, Angie for recommending this to me. She found on planksloveandguacamole.com and also took this great photo for me!
