Coconut Chicken Salad

with Warm Honey Mustard Vinaigrette - Whoever posted this recipe (sorry, did a search and can't find it again) THANK YOU.

It is now my favorite salad. I did add a couple things like hard boiled eggs and home grown cherry tomatoes. I also added more canola oil than the vinaigrette recipe called for. The coconut chicken is yummy & easy! Thank you!

Here's the recipe. Luckygardnr posted it.

Coconut Chicken Salad with Warm Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
Gina's Skinny Recipes

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

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 375F.

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.

I searched for Coconut CHicken Salad and came up with several other posts, but not that one! You're a pro! :)
