Coconut Fried Chicken


Ah, there was a moment this week when we felt like we were eating fried chicken!  It was nice to have some new flavors in our mouths and it was a little like cheating, although I know it is still in our healthy perimeters.  We ate ours with a lovely green salad with fresh tomatoes, lemon cucumbers, and peas.  I made our dressing with apple cider vinegar and olive oil.  I might try this with fish next time for a good trickery!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken, breast or thigh, cut into large bite sized pieces.  
  • 1/2-1 cup dried coconut (not the sugar variety)
  • 2-4 eggs, beaten
  • Salt
  • Coconut oil for frying
Directions:
  1. Heat coconut oil up in a skillet on medium low.
  2. Dip chicken into egg and then coconut and then place in a warm skillet. Salt them while cooking.
  3. Cook on both sides evenly.  Serve.
