Recipe

Coconut crusted sweet chili chicken fingers, I think I’m in love. This recipe really begins and ends with Thai Sweet Chili sauce – have you tried it before? It’s pretty magical stuff and although the nutritional info isn’t the best (it’s got a lot of sugar), you don’t need too much to add terrific flavor. I usually buy the Mae Ploy brand, but Trader Joe’s also makes great one. Alright, back to the recipe. To make these delicious little chicken fingers, we are going to dip our chicken in sweet chili sauce instead of eggs and then bread them in coconut for a sweet and spicy combo. If you want to really play this up, add a bit of Sriracha to the sweet chili sauce to bump up the spice quotient even more. Then we are going to bake them until nice and crispy. Delicious.

    Super, super yummy! We love coconut shrimp, but this chicken is even better! Easy to prep and cook. Depending on the size of your chicken strips (I used chicken tenderloins so I would have less prep), the cooking time may vary a bit. These browned up without having to broil. I made them with the garlic mashed cauliflower and a side salad. My teenage son said this was a keeper!
