  3. Pour the majority of the marinade over the chicken tenders, leaving approximately 3 to 4 tablespoons of marinade left over, to serve as dressing for finished lettuce wrap.

  4. Allow the chicken to marinate for 30 minutes to an hour.

  5. Lightly brush a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of sesame oil. Place each chicken tender down on the baking sheet, approximately ½ inch to 1 inch apart from one another.

  6. Bake in oven for 20 to 25 minutes at 425 degrees F or until the top of the chicken appears golden brown.

  7. Once the chicken is baked, allow the tenders to sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

To Assemble:

  1. Once cooled, lay tenders down on large segments of butter lettuce and top with leftover marinade, leftover herbs and leftover sweetened coconut.

  2. Wrap like a burrito, serve, and enjoy!
