"We tried this with Lime Curd Instead of Lemon Curd. Should have rolled it in coconut since we added the lime.

Very easy recipe to make with great results."

"Can the lemon curd be made with splenda instead of sugar, my Mom is a diabetic and has to watch her carbs.

"These could be baked instead of deep fried. I've successfully baked tenders whether they be fully cooked tenders or raw ones. Preheat oven to about 350 degrees, spray a baking pan well with cooking spray, place tenders & give them a good spray. Cook around 8 minutes, then turn them over & spray well again, if needed, and cook another 8 minutes or until dones. When done, place tenders on paper towels to remove excess oil."
