Delicious coconut crispy chicken fingers with a yummy dipping sauce. We really enjoyed this!

  • 1 lbs. chicken breast, skinless, organic, free-range
  • 2 egg white, from large egg, cage-free, organic
  • 1/2 c. almond flour, organic
  • 1 c. coconut, unsweetened, flakes or chips, organic
  • 1 tsp. curry powder, organic
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1 tsp. black pepper, ground, organic
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder, organic
  • garlic powder, organic to taste
  • 1 c. pineapple, chunks, canned, organic
  • 2 tbs. lime juice, pure, organic
  • honey, raw, unfiltered, organic to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

You will be using 3 shallow dishes or plates.

First shallow dish is for your eggs, lightly beaten.

Second shallow dish, put the almond flour.

In another shallow dish, combine coconut, curry, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.

Dredge each chicken strip in almond flour, then dip into eggs to coat. Then, put into coconut/spice mixture and pat gently so it will stick well to the chicken.

Arrange on a greased baking sheet. I usually use foil first so I don't have so much washing up to do. Then I will grease the foil or put raised cookie cooling racks on the baking sheet and grease those. That really works well because the air can circulate all around the chicken to make it crispy.

Repeat until you have coated each piece of chicken.

Bake for 15-17 minutes (approx), until coconut flakes are crisp and begin to brown. Watch carefully.

While your chicken is baking......

DIPPING SAUCE: Combine the pineapple chunks, lime juice and honey in your food processor or blender and pulse lightly until it is combined. You can leave it a bit chunky if you wish.

Serve chicken fingers with the pineapple dipping sauce on the side.

I made this for lunch today and it was really so tasty! And I can see it will be fun to play with the different spices, coatings and dipping sauce to change it up a bit each time. :)

Next time I might dip each chicken strip into melted coconut oil instead of the eggs
