Directions:

Roasted Vegetables
  1. Heat oven to 400F. Chop vegetables into the desired size, place in a bowl add in oil and spices. Mix together.
  2. Add foil to a pan and spread veggies out evenly. Roast 15-20 minutes.
Coconut Chicken
  1. Turn oven to 400F. In medium bowl, combine eggs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and mix together thoroughly. In a separate bowl, add the panko and shredded coconut.
  2. Dip the chicken strips in the egg mixture, coating both sides. Let excess drip off. Place the egg coated chicken into the panko/coconut mixture.
  3. Place the coconut coated chicken on a foiled baking sheet (can be the same as the vegetables). Throw away excess egg and coconut mixture. Lightly spray the tops of the chicken tenders with olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Bake on the middle oven rack for 12-14 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the coating is crisp and golden brown.

Healthy coconut chicken tenders and roasted veggies is a great weeknight meal and kid approved! It’s an easy way to bake chicken and the breading adds a ton of flavor!

Coconut baked chicken with veggies will be a new week night favorite, with its golden and crispy coating. The added texture and flavor will put the old chicken strips to shame! I mean doesn’t it just look amazing?

I hear clients all the time say they are tired of grilled chicken breasts and salad. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring or complicated. Simple ingredients and a flakey crust can go a long way. This recipe is great as leftovers and is kid friendly!

Baked Chicken Tender Nutrition Info:

Chicken: provides a good source of protein, essential vitamins, and minerals. Protein plays an important role in our diet. It is made of amino acids, which are the building blocks of our muscles. Chicken is an easy lean protein source for meal prepping too!

Asparagus: is a low-calorie vegetable that is an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, especially folate and vitamins A, C and K. Asparagus can be a healthy alternative for fries, at least that’s what my mom tried to convince of when I was little.

Carrots: are a good source of beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants. Cut the carrots into small circles and roast them until they are crispy! Carrot chips are tasty!
