Crunchy Chicken Tenders with Cauliflower Mash

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Place cilantro, garlic, oil, and lime juice in a blender. Cover; blend until just smooth. Set aside.
  2. Place the cauliflower and potatoes in a 4-qt. Dutch oven. Add enough water to cover. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until very tender. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Add reserved liquid, cumin, and 1/2 tsp. of the salt to the cauliflower mixture; mash with a potato masher. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until heated through.
  3. Meanwhile, place yogurt in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish stir together cornmeal, the remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, and pepper in another shallow dish. Dip chicken in yogurt and then dust with cornmeal mixture to coat. Arrange on prepared baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degrees F).
  4. Serve chicken with cauliflower mash and top with cilantro pesto. Garnish with additional cilantro, if desired.
