Coconut Chicken Tenders – UPDATED

OMG! Take a look at these! If you can do coconut, I bet these are fantastic (might have to try these tonight with some chicken thighs)!

1 1/2 lbs chicken breast (cut into strips)
1 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 egg, beaten


I haven’t even finished eating yet. I had to say just how f-ing tasty these are! The only thing I changed was doubling the pepper, garlic, paprika and added 1/2 tsp of chili powder, plus used boneless skinless thighs. Now, one thing to keep in mind is: coconut oil has a high burn point but actual coconut does not! I would suggest heating the oil on medium and let it get nice and hot before browning. My whole house is filled with the smoke from burning coconut but DAMN! This stuff is good!
