    I tend to make baked honey-soy chicken, parmesan greek yogurt chicken, coconut chicken tenders, lightened-up shrimp scampi, broiled haddock, taco casserole, and asian-style ground chicken quite a bit. Those are all my go-tos that are easy to make and hard to get sick of, for me anyways :)

    Coconut chicken tenders. These sound good! Do you have a recipe @ashleypetrie4?

    When my children were small I would take out their portions before adding more spice for my husband and I. Also things like grilled chicken nuggets or tenders can have their own dipping sauces to suit different tastes. I would pair that with steamed baby carrots which would also get dipped.

    Yes, they're amazing!! @chloeelizabethm

    I used this recipe for the oven temp/cooking time, but I significantly reduced the calories by literally only using the chicken breast, coconut oil cooking spray, and unsweetened coconut. I just cut the chicken into strips or nuggets, spray with just a little of the cooking spray, throw that into a gallon zip-top bag with 6 tbsp of the unsweetened coconut and bake! Still so tasty and not loaded with extra calories :)

    Thank you @ashleypetrie4 - I'm definitely going to be making these soon! What do you usually have them with? I'm thinking creamed corn would work...

    No problem, @chloeelizabethm !

    I usually have them with broccoli or spinach and some sweet potato or brown rice, but creamed corn sounds like it would be delicious too!

    I've also thrown them on top of a salad or just eat them as a snack if I need a little more protein :)
