Crispy Coconut Chicken Strips

Crispy Coconut Chicken Strips are an easy weeknight meal or a fantastic appetizer. Make them as mild or as spicy as you like with the addition of cayenne pepper for a great sweet and spicy combo. My youngest’s favorite meal is fried chicken cutlets. And while I am never one to turn away a piece of crispy chicken, I can say that switching up the usual breadcrumbs for coconut (in the case) is a welcome variation. 

Even my non coconut loving child loves these. The sweet coconut gets brown and crispy while the chicken stays tender. I love adding some sriracha sauce and a little cayenne pepper to really play up the sweet and spicy combo. And if you’re not into frying stuff (I get it) you can totally bake these. They don’t get as crispy, but they are still pretty delicious.
