Coconut Chicken Strips

It’s no surprise that I love to Instagram my food and drinks.  But sometimes dinner is not what I consider “Instagram-worthy.”  Or perhaps I have posted too many pictures for one day (there’s usually a one-picture limit during the week) and it never makes it to my Instagram feed.

But honestly, that’s okay.  Everyone doesn’t need to know every detail of my diet (like when I ran out of coffee beans on Monday and I had to run into Dunkin’ for a cup).  Though I like to believe that everyone is interested in every detail of my diet.

This particular dinner wasn’t anything special.  Or beautiful and glamorous.

But it was delicious.  And filling.

And I was completely satisfied with my Coconut Chicken Strips despite the fact that I didn’t Instagram.  And I must admit, I kind of felt like a kid eating these chicken tenders.

The recipe is simple and comes together in under 30 minutes.  So it’s perfect for a weeknight.

The chicken tenders are sprinkled with salt and pepper and then simply dredged in the flour (I used an all-purpose gluten-free blend), then dipped in egg, then dredged in a mixture of panko (I used a gluten-free brand) and coconut.

Bake for 6-8 minutes per side and serve with your choice of dippings (I know, it’s not a word).


I served our tenders with leftover dressing from the weekend and the remaining homemade ketchup.

I don’t think I’ve ever made true chicken tenders from scratch but they hit the spot.

Sometimes you don’t want to be fancy.

And sometimes, it’s okay not to Instagram your dinner.

  1. Although you know I LOVE seeing what you’re eating for dinner, I absolutely agree with you on the concept of not everything is worthy of an Instagram post.
