  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3/4 cups desiccated coconut
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Dried Parsley for garnish

Start by cutting the chicken breast into pieces that resemble tenders.
Prepare 3 plates. Add the beaten eggs to one, the coconut flour, desiccated coconut, salt, pepper and garlic powder to the other and leave the final one for the chicken pieces.
Dip each chicken piece into the egg then coconut mixture.
Bake or air-fry these for 20 minutes, flipping them halfway. I air-fried them at 375°F/190°C, so they will require a higher temperature in the oven.
You can serve these with a dipping sauce, fries, roasted potatoes, salad or even on top of risotto!
