Coconut Chicken Tenders

 I am a fan of coconut shrimp so why not try the recipe for chicken???  So glad that I tried this because it will remain in the favorites section in my recipe box!
 Coconut Chicken Tenders:

3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
3 tablespoons Panko crumbs
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used 1/2 tsp. and it was plenty spicy for my liking)
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon orange juice
4-4 chicken tenders (depends on size)
Freshly ground pepper

Combine coconut, Panko, ginger and cayenne pepper completely.
Sprinkle ground pepper on chicken tenders.

Blend honey and orange juice, then dip tenders in mixture and finally roll the chicken in the coconut mixture.  

Place tenders in a foil lined baking dish and place in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

I hope you will try this simple recipe and enjoy it like we did!
