Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers
Go Paleo or not. Kinda like coconut shrimp only it's crispy coconut chicken! Kids will love these too!
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips (your choice is size)
- 1 egg, whisked
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup almond flour or regular gluten free flour if you're not Paleo
- pinch of salt
- coconut oil, for greasing pan
- Maple Mustard Paleo Chef Sauce (for dipping)
*Or go creative and make your own dipping sauce with Dijon mustard, a little coconut aminos, and maple syrup.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut chicken into strips.
- In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg. In another shallow bowl, mix together coconut, almond flour and salt.
- Dredge chicken strips in the whisked egg, then straight to the coconut mixture. Coat on all sides then place on a plate. Repeat with all chicken strips.
- Place a large pan over medium heat. Add a tablespoon or two to the pan. Once the pan is super hot, add the strips to the pan without crowding it. Cook for about 1 minute on both sides. You may need to do this in 2-3 batches depending how big the strips are.
- Place the strips on a cooling rack that has been placed on top of a baking sheet. This will help the chicken strips cook on both sides without getting soggy. If you don't have a cooling sheet, you will just have to flip them half way through the baking.
- Place baking sheet in the oven and cook for 10-12 minutes or until no pink remains inside the chicken.
- Let cool on baking sheet before serving. Dip them into maple mustard sauce!
