Dreaming about the tropics? Here is a good way to stop dreaming and start living. Making this spicy coconut tenders at home would get you closer to the tropics (at least your taste buds would).
I would have to say, anything coconut just does this for me. You can tell am from the tropics, eh? Probably that is why.
So, if you love coconut shrimp, then it is only natural for you love this Crispy Caribbean Coconut Chicken Strips. The nutty flavor of the coconut adds so much more to this chicken strips, it not only enhances it’s flavor , but also only adds great texture rendering a moist tender chicken.
Now , this recipe comes together in an easy process. Cut the chicken in desired size or buy chicken tender/ fingers. Most supermarkets carry it.
Add the spices to the coconut and bread crumbs, whisk eggs. Dip, coat bake or fry. How easy is that!
Here, I offered two options baked or fried. You get to pick.
The baked version is hassle free, healthy and delicious. You can shift your focus on something else while it is baking. It turns tout crisp and pale golden all around.Like this!
On the other hand, the fried version is ; moist, not healthy , crispy and finger licking good. It turns out a deep brown color. Like this.
As soon as these come out of the fryer they are AMAZING! Confused? Yeah, that is how I felt . I could not tell the difference after a while.
Bottom line, they both taste Great! Words can describe it. Pick one and go for it.
Fear not! The coconut flavor it is not too over-powering. It yields a mild flavor yet succulent taste. Great for adults and kids -they just might go bananas over these.
