Instead of frozen chicken strips from the freezer, it’s always fun to make your own chicken strips. M really wanted to make some coconut chicken strips from a adapted recipe from his coworker.
4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup hoisin sauce
- ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 cup of sweetened shredded coconut
You start by taken your sweetened shredded coconut and put it into a medium heat pan.
Cook until it has lightly browned. You may want to stir it once in a while if your pan has uneven heating.
To create the marinade for the chicken breasts, mix together an egg, hoisin sauce and cayenne pepper.
We got 4 boneless chicken breasts and sliced them up. We cut them into thirds.
Once you have the chicken sliced, coat the strips into the marinade and then toss it in the toasted shredded coconut, salt and pepper.
Into the oven it goes for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven (350ºF or 176ºC).
Voila, it’s done. You can serve the coconut chicken strips as a snack or for dinner by just adding a salad.
It was very simple to make and you didn’t have to buy a lot of ingredients. M and I really like making dinner with the least ingredients possible so nothing expires and goes wasted.
