1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp coconut oil

  • After cutting chicken intro strips, pound a bit using a meat mallet to get a thinner fillet. Season chicken well with salt and pepper.
  • Place egg whites in a small, shallow bowl. And in another shallow bowl, combine shredded coconut and Panko.
  • One by one, dip each chicken strip into the egg whites, shake to remove excess and then dip into the coconut/Panko mixture,tossing to coat well. Repeat until all chicken strips are breaded.
  • Heat coconut oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
