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!

How to Make Pecan Coconut Crusted Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. grind pecans in food processor until they are like a course meal
  2. combine ground pecans, panko and coconut with salt and pepper to taste and mix well to make breading for chicken
  3. whisk 2 large eggs together and dredge chicken strips or tenders in egg and roll in pecan/coconut breading line on parchment paper covered baking sheet continue until all chicken is covered in breading.
  4. Heat enough oil in a large fry pan to cover half way up chicken when put into pan (about 1 1/2 to 2 inches) fry in small batches, don't over crowd the chicken or it will not get a good crust on it.
