Description

Chicken tenders dipped in a sweetened egg dip and then breaded in panko crumbs and coconut. Served with Honey Marmalade dipping sauce

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Chicken Tenders
  • Salt And Pepper
  • ½ cups Orange Juice
  • ½ cans Sweetened, Condensed Milk
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Sweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 1-½ cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Peanut Oil For Frying
  • ½ cups Honey
  • ½ cups Orange Marmalade

Preparation

On a cookie sheet, season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Set aside. In a medium bowl, mix orange juice, condensed milk, and a beaten egg until your “wet” mixture is well incorporated. In another bowl, mix coconut and panko crumbs.

Heat peanut oil in a medium pan or skillet on medium-high heat. Fill pan with about 1/2″ of oil. Dip and fully coat each tender in the egg mixture first and then the panko/coconut mix. Set each coated chicken on a cookie cooling rack.

Fry each tender for 6-8 minutes until golden brown. Serve with Honey Marmalade dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Honey Marmalade Dipping Sauce Instructions:
In a small bowl, add honey and marmalade. Heat in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir everything until well mixed and serve with coconut chicken tenders.

Can another type of oil (like canola) be substituted for the peanut oil?

My family thought this was so good! It was sweet, but we paired it with a salty side dish. I did change one thing. I used apricot preserves instead of orange marmalade in the sauce because that is what we had on hand. There was a ton of sauce, but I just saved it for future use.

We really liked this. The sauce made way to much and was quite sweet, but I liked it in small doses . I might try adding some Siracha hot sauce to it next time like someone suggested!

So easy to make, I had my 7 year old by my side. I love how sweet they are and the crunch is great.

Will make this again. Thanks

I did not make the sauce, so I cannot comment on that. However, the chicken tenders were D-E-Licous! So good. Even my husband, who was skeptical as to “why would someone try to improve on a good thing” was sold, and gave it two thumbs up. I used to babysit for a girl who got these type of tenders frozen from whole foods. Yours beat them out! Loved it!

I thought the whole thing was a little overly sweet. We liked the coconut batter enough to start using it on shrimp, but no one in my family cared for the sauce.

These are amazing! This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! I’ve tried spraying them breaded tenders with peanut oil and baking them… it turns out that you really do have to fry them, or it’s like a completely different (not very good) recipe. So I just splurge on the frying and will only make them once or twice a year.

This is very good. Everybody liked it but one who proclaimed she “hates coconut”. In any case, it’s a little bit of work to make, but very delicious.
