Coconut Crusted Chicken Fingers
Simple, satisfying, and bursting with flavor: get your island fix with our crispy coconut crusted chicken fingers!
If you’re searching for a tasty, healthy alternative to greasy fried chicken fingers, then these Healthy Coconut Chicken Fingers are the sure way to go! First off, the coconut coating adds a subtle sweetness and irresistible crunch to the tender chicken strips. Not to mention, coconut contains healthy fats that will keep you feeling full and satisfied. Plus, these fingers are baked instead of fried, cutting out unnecessary calories (if you’re into that), while still delivering on juicy, flavorful chicken. The “breading,” if you will is almond flour, which is a great alternative to traditional breadcrumbs. And let’s not forget about the dipping sauce possibilities! These taste great with all sorts of dips but my favorite is sriracha and vegan mayo. Trust me, after one bite of these coconut chicken fingers, you won’t even miss those greasy fast-food ones; or at least you’ll forget about them for the time being.
As far as nutrition info goes, coconut is a natural sweetener and lean chicken breast is always a yes! From healthy fats in coconuts to protein in chicken, these foods provide a wealth of benefits for our bodies. Not only do they taste delicious together, but they also balance each other out in terms of taste and texture.
