Guest Post Recipe: Coconut Chicken Salad

I am SO excited to share a special guest post with you guys today!! We started our blogs about the same time, and I think hers is really great!! 
Hello!  I am from The Forward Home where we take new and old ideas to create a new modern Forward Home!  I love Ashley’s blog and am so excited to be here!  I love healthy tasty meals so here is one of our families all time favorites! 
Coconut Chicken Salad
398 calories per serving
Serves 4 people 
Qty   Measure     Ingredient
6       (about        12 oz) chicken tenderloins
(I use 2-3 chicken breasts and cut then to tenderloin size)
6       tbsp   shredded coconut
1/4    cup   panko crumbs
2       tbsp   crushed cornflake crumbs
2      large egg whites
         a pinch of salt
         crisco cooking spray 
6       cups  baby spinach 
1       large tomato, sliced
1       small cucumber, sliced
1       tbsp   oil
1       tbsp   honey
1       tbsp   white vinegar (balsamic would work too)
2       tsp     dijon mustard
1.  Preheat oven to 375°.

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

3.  Lightly season chicken with salt. Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the coconut crumb mixture (I press the crumb mixture into the chicken a little so it will stick well). 

4.  Place chicken on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil for less mess. Lightly spray with crisp cooking spray and bake for 20-30 minutes turning halfway, or until chicken is cooked through (time depends on thickness of chicken, the chicken pictured was cooked about 24 minutes).
5.  Place 2 cups baby greens on each plate, layer with cucumber, and tomatoes. Top with warm chicken.
6.  Combine all vinaigrette ingredients into a microwavable small bowl or glass, microwave for 10-20 seconds to slightly melt the honey.  Whisk together and pour over ready to eat salad.


Looks SO yummy!! I can't wait to try it!! Until next time, stop on over and check out Stephanie at  The Forward Home!!
