Tender Baked Coconut chicken strips coated in sweet coconut flakes, baked til crispy and served with the best Asian sweet chili sauce!
Hellloooooo you foodie friends. Weekend off to a good start?? Our friday night was low key and really, I like a good low-key friday night from time to time. Some muy delicioso baked coconut chicken strips, a grueling game of Scrabble (grueling folks. Scrabble is serious stuff), and a visit with the parents. Fun right!?
Wow. We sounds like a really old married couple. Except we can still hear each other. And see each other. And I don’t knit.
Coconut chicken strips, have you had them before?? So good. These ones are baked and so easy – 5 ingredient easy – and healthy. I love the sweetness from the coconut flakes paired with the tang from sweet and sour sauce or better yet, the kick of spice you get with sweet chili sauce!
