Baked Coconut Chicken Strips

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.

Baked Coconut Chicken Strips

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!

Yum! I love coconut, what a perfect dish Tiffany!

I add spicy brown mustard to the sweet chili sauce.

It’s hard to believe that these chicken strips are baked and not fried, they look so crisp, golden and delicious!

    Isn’t that crazy?? Makes you wonder why you’d ever fry them right? Way healthier, and just as (if not more!) tasty!! 🙂

Making these for dinner tonight!

I just made these tonight and they were seriously so good! My husband could not stop eating them. We dipped them in a Thai pineapple chili sauce. Thank you for the recipe! It is definitely a new favorite in our house.

    Ooh, Thai pineapple chili sauce?? I’m sold!!!
