  1. Combine seasoned salt, five spice powder, peanut butter and milk in a shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs and coconut in another shallow bowl. Coat chicken in peanut butter mixture, dip into breading mixture. Pat to coat well.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken tenders slowly to achieve even browning, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add more oil as needed.

made this tonight for my family of 4 was very good.i marinaded the chicken in the peanut sauce for about 1 hour in the fridge then breaded and fried them. did not have apricot jam for the dip.....

Pretty good recipe. Don't microwave the sauce, rather heat it in a skillet.

This was not cheap to make the Chinese spice was $3 alone. The peanutbutter sauce is VERY bitter and salty.

This is a favorite in our house. I bake the chicken at 350 for 15-20 minutes rather than frying it. I always steam carrots to go with it because the sauce goes very well with them also.

To my surprise, we thoroughly enjoyed this. I tasted the peanut sauce coating and thought OMG it has too much seasoned salt, but you know what...it didn't. I wish there'd been more of a coconu...
