Crispy Cashew Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders With Mango Honey Dip
There are some recipes that look so good in photos on blogs and then when you make them, they turn out just as good as you dreamed them to be! This Crispy Cashew Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders With Mango Honey Dip seems like one of those recipes! We see chicken breaded with breadcrumbs, with almond meal and sometimes pecans, but never really with cashews. Cashews are so full of amazing health benefits that would add so much nutrition to this chicken. They have high amounts of B vitamins, and are really good for calming the nervous system. The creamy light texture would be perfect for a crust on chicken. It makes you think, why didn't I think of that sooner?
This chicken looks like it could be a weekly favorite, for sure. There is just so much to love about it after all! The tender chicken inside the crunchy cashew crust. Dipped into a sweet and spicy mango honey dip... it would just be the perfect balance of sweet and salty in a meal. The tenders would taste awesome over a salad, as the author or the recipe says in this post. She even has another recipe for the salad that she made to go with this chicken.
