My Hubby gets some strange cravings he asked for nutty coconut something please. So this is what I had on hand to throw together for dinner last night. He loved it so it will be a weekly rotation now if he gets his way! ;)

Mango Line Salsa is sooooooooooooo good with this! I will post my canning recipe for it (you don't have to can this you can make ahead and use it same day)

I am going to make these as popcorn chicken as well and stick a tooth pick in them for a baby shower this weekend think they will do great as an appetizer!
