Ingredients (serves 3 | makes 6-8 crumbed chicken tenderloins )

  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut (I use the macro brand, it has no sulphites)
  • 500g Chicken tenderloins
  • 3 eggs Mix in a bowl (you can decrease eggs and add milk if you don’t have allergies)
  • 1/2 cup Flour You can use any flour you like I use low FODMap flour
  • 1 lime I don’t add this for my kids but I use the zest and mix it with the coconut and use the juice on the cooked chicken

Method

  1. Cut the fat and other if any unwanted parts of the tenderloin
  2. Dust all tenderloins in the flour
  3. Dip the tenderloins into the egg wash
  4. The egg and flour act as the glue to adhere you shredded coconut on.
  5. Either in a pan or the over bake or fry. If using the oven place on a bake sheet 180 (fan forced) and lightly spray with oil (I use rice bran). In a pan with oil fry on both sides until golden and delicious.


  • What a simple and fabulous idea. I’ve never tried coconut crumb, but willing to try.

  • Coconut crumble coating is lovely. I even do that sometimes with zucchini slices, cauliflower, broccoli florets and camembert pieces. It presents nice

    • Thanks everyone!!!
      I actually did this one night, my little man was feeling left out at school because he couldn’t have tuckshop (no gluten free options I’m afraid ????) so I made this and popped it in a brown paper bag so he felt included. He loved it !!!

      I love it with some fresh lime squeezed on top too…..yummo
