Source: skinnytaste.com

We at the WLCR are committed to help you with your personal healthy living journal.  Along these lines, we are continuing our (hopefully) weekly series of Chana’s favorite recipes.  Chana is queen of the kitchen and scours the world (wide web) looking for yummy and healthy recipes.  All of the recipes in this series have been tested and found to be worthy of the title ‘favorite recipe’.  If you have any suggestions for great recipes that you have tried, please add them as a comment to the posts.

Today’s treat was really easy to make and can be used as a main course for lunch or dinner or a side course for a larger meal.  The whole family loved it!

  • 6 (about 12 oz) chicken tenderloins
  • 6 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 2 tbsp crushed cornflake crumbs
  • 1/3 cup egg substitute or egg whites
  • pinch salt
  • olive oil spray
  • 6 cups mixed baby greens
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 small cucumber, sliced

Vinaigrette

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar (balsamic would work too)
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard

Whisk all vinaigrette ingredients; set aside.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine coconut flakes, panko, cornflake crumbs and salt in a bowl. Put egg whites or egg beaters in another bowl.

Lightly season chicken with salt. Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the coconut crumb mixture. Place chicken on a cookie sheet lined with parchment for easy cleanup. Lightly spray with olive oil spray and bake for 30 minutes turning halfway, or until chicken is cooked through.

Place 2 cups baby greens on each plate. Divide carrots, cucumber, tomato evenly between each plate. When chicken is ready slice on the diagonal and place on top of greens. Heat dressing in the microwave a few seconds and divide equally between each salad; a little over 1 tbsp each.
