Coconut Crusted Chicken Tenders

So oh my god!!

I made these a few weeks ago, I was really craving something bold for dinner and decided to give these a bash!!

This is an quick and easy recipe!

Enjoy it as your dinner, starter or just a bit of finger food…


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts;
  • 1/2 cup (or less) coconut flour;
  • 2 eggs;
  • A splash of full-fat coconut milk;
  • 1 cup (more or less) shredded coconut;
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste



  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F.


  1. Using a heavy object, like a rolling pin, hammer the chicken breasts so that they flatten to an even thickness. Cut the chicken into long strips that are about 3/4″ to 1″ in width.






  1. You will need three bowls; one for the coconut flour, one for the coconut milk and egg mixture (just beat the eggs and milk together) and one for the shredded coconut.




  1. Coat each chicken strip in the coconut flour, then dunk in the egg and coconut milk mixture and finally coat in the shredded coconut. When finished, place the chicken strips on a large baking sheet, leaving some space between each strip and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until chicken has completely cooked through.
