COCONUT CHICKEN: 

1 1/2 tsps. seasoned salt

1/2 tsp. Chinese five spice powder

2 tbsps. Smucker's® Creamy Natural Peanut Butter

1/4 cup fat free milk

1 1/4 cups panko bread crumbs

1/2 cup flaked coconut

1 (1 lb.) pkg. boneless skinless chicken breast tenders

1/4 cup Crisco® Puritan Canola Oil with Omega-3 DHA

APRICOT-GINGER SAUCE:

1 (10.25 oz.) jar Smucker's® Apricot Low Sugar Preserves, (1 cup)

1/2 tsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice

3/4 tsp. dark Asian sesame oil

1/2 tsp. finely grated gingerroot
