The “Ha” We Didn’t Eat Frozen Pizza for Dinner Tonight Triumph!

Coconut Chicken Tenders with Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice

Coconut Chicken Tenders with Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice

It was late.  We had been traveling through a snowstorm and I had worked 10+ hours.  I wanted to make something good for dinner.  I told Mark, Mr. Happy, what I planned on making:

Pineapple Cashew Fried Rice

Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders

He actually slouched, let out an ‘ugh’ sound and then said, “Well, it looks like I’ll need to pick up a frozen pizza.”  So I marinaded and dredged my chicken in the coconut flour mix… and I chopped my vegetables and stir fried them with the rice.  I placed our dinner on the table, which Mr. Happy set for us, and left the room. And waited.  Then, I heard it.  No, not the sound of plastic being torn off a frozen pizza, but a “MMMMmmmmmmmm” sound.  I sat down and could not help but release a huge smile.  Mark looked up from his dinner and asked me to add this into our repeat meal repertoire.  Frozen pizza be damned.

I had seen the recipes on How Sweet It Is and had to try them.  The Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders were very similar to my  Coconut Shrimp, so I knew they would be good.  I did not make the dipping sauce – as peaches are not currently in season.  The fried rice recipe is excellent – I just omitted the eggs, used canned pineapple chunks in 100% juice and cut the oil used in half.
