Sick of holiday food yet? I am. 

Ready for the fun stuff again.
Coconut ChickenI’m honestly tired of the holidays period. Now that we’ve said adios to 2015, I’m officially ready to get back to making my fun food. 

These are fun, and delicious. I made two different dipping sauces. 
Coconut Chicken BitesI like variety. 

These are simply boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I cubed and breaded with seasoned AP flour, Sprouts coconut flour, breadcrumbs and coconut flakes. The first batch I baked, which you could definitely do, but I decided to fry the rest of them because I didn’t get that golden color I was going for. The taste isn’t all that different, just a little more crispy and a little more juicy. Please bake them for a healthier version if you want to – you really won’t miss out much as far as taste. Throw them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes and flip halfway through.

The first dip is made with mayo, dijon mustard and a little horseradish.

Coconut ChickenI LOVE spicy-sweet-crispy-savory combos.

Here’s your printable – Enjoy.
