  • non-stick canola oil spray
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into tenders
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup cornflake crumbs
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6-8 cups fresh greens of your choice
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly-sliced radishes
  • 1 large cucumber sliced thin
  • dressing of your choice I used Briannas' Chipotle Cheddar


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and line a large lipped baking sheet with parchment paper, foil or a silicone baking mat. Spray it generously with a non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • In one shallow bowl add the flour. With a second shallow bowl add the beaten eggs. In a third shallow bowl combine the cornflake crumbs, shredded coconut, bread crumbs, salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Give it a good toss.
  • Taking each chicken tender, dredge in the flour, and then the egg, and then the coconut mixture. Press to adhere where needed and lay the chicken out on the prepared baking sheet. Once you have done this for all of the chicken tenders, spray them generously with a non-stick spray.
  • Bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes or until brown and crispy on top and the chicken has cooked through. Remove from heat and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Slice the chicken with a sharp knife.
  • Assemble your salads by tossing together the fresh greens, radishes and cucumbers. Top with the chicken and drizzle with your favorite dressing. Enjoy immediately!
