When I was first dating my husband I made him some coconut chicken and he loved it. He loved it so much that he told his parents about my coconut chicken recipe.
I knew I wanted to put that recipe on this blog, so I made it again for us so I could take photos.
Yet, I remembered it tasting much better. The hubby still loved it though. It tasted good to me but I wanted better. I want the best for you all. So, I reworked my recipe and I loved it along with my hubs.
Notes about the Recipe
Please note that the nutrition facts may vary for your meal due to how much coconut flour and coconut flakes you can stick to your chicken. The thickness also will play a factor for you for breeding and with cooking it.
Alternative Cooking Method
Instead of baking the chicken, deep fry it in a fancy machine that I don’t have or cook it on the stove in an inch of oil or so. I bet cooking it this would be way better.
This would, of course, give you more fat for this meal. When you are in weight loss mode, you would want to decrease your fats so your body will burn your body fat. Don’t go too low in your fats though. 🙂
Coconut may contain carbohydrates but they also contain a high amount of fiber which helps you in the bathroom. In addition to helping in the bathroom, fiber allows for the net carbs to be low and not high.
Coconut meat or the flakes in this recipe is also a great source of manganese (1 oz will give you 38% of your daily value) (1). Manganese (not magnesium) is an essential mineral that our bodies need.
Manganese is essential for bone health and it’s used in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates, and cholesterol (2). Manganese is also used in wound healing (2).
