A hybrid of coconut shrimp and classic chicken tenders.


    1 lbs. chicken breast

    1/2 c. shredded coconut

    1/4 c. coconut flour

    1/4 tsp. sea salt

    1/8 tsp. black pepper

    2 tbsp. coconut oil

    1/8 tsp. garlic powder

    1/8 tsp. paprika

    1 egg


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cut the chicken into strips. Mix together shredded coconut, coconut flour, and spices in a shallow bowl. Lightly beat egg in another shallow bowl. Dip one chicken strip at a time in the egg, then dredge in coconut mixture. Set aside.

Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place coated chicken strips in the oil and fry until browned on both sides. Transfer the strips to prepared baking sheet and bake for 5-7 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
