We're Back...and with a GF Chicken Tender Recipe!

Yes, we have been away for a bit, with a lot of craziness behind us. Lesh has just recently been diagnosed with Celiac's disease, so our cooking adventures have been altered to reflect our new gluten-free (GF) lifestyle.

Today's lunch was a new recipe I am working on perfecting for Lesh to give her a GF option for one of her favorite foods.

Comments are always welcome. :)

Coconut-Crusted Chicken Tenders (Gluten-Free)

1 lb ground chicken
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/8 cup white rice flour
1/8 cup + 1/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
1 egg yolk
1 tsp garlic powder
2 pinches of brown sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
EVOO to coat the pan

1. Coat pain with EVOO and heat on medium.

2. Mix chicken with egg yolk, the 1/4 cup of GF all-purpose flour, garlic powder, and salt & pepper together until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

3. In a separate bowl, mix coconut, white rice flour, the 1/8 cup of GF all-purpose flour, brown sugar, and salt & pepper together using fingers or a fork.

4. Using a tablespoon, dip out chicken and roll in coconut mixture with fingers.

5. Cook tenders until golden brown on both sides.

6. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!

This made about 16 tenders for us. We saved the extras to make with pasta later this week.

More new recipes and fun later...
