Coconut Chicken Tenders

recipes Aug 25, 2017


  • 2 lbs of fresh chicken tenders (not frozen)
  • 2/3 cup coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 Tbs taco seasoning
  • Salt to taste


Pat chicken tenders dry with paper towel.
Spray large baking pan with cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 350.
Get 3 shallow bowls or dishes. In one bowl, mix coconut flour, 2 TBS taco seasoning, pinch of salt.
In another bowl, stir 3 eggs together with 1 TBS taco seasoning.
In the third bowl, pour shredded coconuts.

Take your chicken tenders and first coat in coconut flour. Then dunk completely in egg mixture. Then coat completely with shredded coconut.

Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, flipping over half way. Chicken will be cooked thoroughly and not pink.

We made these with sweet potato fries and everyone in the family loved them!

My 3 year old helped me in the kitchen making these! She loved pouring out the flour and coconut, and dunking the chicken in bowls! Yes, it's messy, and it takes longer, but the earlier you get kids in the kitchen, the better! Just make sure they wash their hands really well!
