These  crispy chicken tenders appeal to both kids and grown-ups.  Kids love dipping these in their favorite sauce and grown-ups enjoy them atop a salad.

1 lb skinless, boneless organic chicken breasts
1/2 c coconut flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 egg white, lightly beaten
3/4 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1/3 c nut of choice, finely chopped (optional)
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
Cut chicken into nugget-sized pieces.  In a plastic bag, mix together coconut flour and chicken tenders.  In a small bowl, combine egg and egg white.  In a shallow dish, combine coconut flakes, nuts(optional) and spices.  Working with one chicken tender at a time, dip lightly in egg mixture, dredge in coconut/spice mixture and place on baking sheet.  Bake @ 450 for about 20 minutes or until juices run clear.
