Super simple, super sweet coconut chicken. This actually happened by chance tonight. I was going to make shrimp again and the batch I was given wasn’t too appealing. So, I pulled out the trusty yard bird and threw down some tenders. This is really easy and I’m telling you, the coconut sweet drops really bring out that coconut flavor that’s missing from the unsweetened coconut flakes.
- 6 tbs coconut flour
- 2 or 3 eggs
- 5 oz unsweetened coconut flakes
- 2 squirts of coconut sweet drops; can be found here —>> https://amzn.to/2Q0Ccwp
Set up your batter station from left to right. Chicken, coconut flour, egg wash, and then coconut flakes. In the eggs, add your 2 squirts of the sweet drops. You can thank me later.
Take your chicken from the package and roll in the coconut flour. Make sure you coat the entire surface of the tender.
Dip coated tender in the egg mixture. Make sure you let the excess run off.
Directly place your tender on the coconut. Press down gently and then flip. Make sure you get the coconut all over the entire surface. Place on your air fryer rack. Repeat until all of your tenders are coated. Season the tenders once all battered for extra flavor. I chose a spicy seasoning so we could have that sweet and spicy combo.
Place your tenders in your pre-heated air fryer for 12 minutes at 400 degrees. If you don’t have an air fryer with racks, you will need to flip at about 6 minutes. Remove when your 12 minutes are up and let the rest for a few minutes.
Plate however you like. Pair with a nice vegetable, a great salad (like I did), or just use to dip in your favorite Keto approved sauce. Enjoy this super simple recipe!
