      Chicken tenders came out great, and my friends liked them too. I used only enough oil to simmer the chicken half-way and then flipped them after about two minutes. I also used three whole eggs as opposed to egg whites. If you make many batches, you might have to change your oil because some coconut shaves remain and become too browned. Great dish! I ate it with corn.

      Delicious, but I truly need to cut back on my fried food consumption and rediscover my body. Not that it's hard to lose it, but she's been gone for so long that I may have to instigate a missing person's investigation. It would go like this: Officer: When did you last see her? Me: Approximately 20 years ago. Made for All You Can Cook--Special Event Tag.
