I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconut (Chicken Fingers)
Posted Jan 30 2011 4:46pm
Continuing right along with my tour de Cooking Light, last week I made the coconut chicken fingers from the January/February issue!
I love coconut. Eric isn’t a huge fan (to my utter disappointment because I am dying to make him my half-orange cupcakes !) but my friend Lauren made the recipe and said that her coconut-averse roommates liked the recipe, so I decided to go for it anyway.
The verdict? The coconut lover loved them and the coconut hater didn’t love them, but ate them anyway.
Oh, but I strongly suggest you pick up some chile sauce or some sort of Asian condiment to go with these! They are good alone, but a few bites in, Eric and I both agreed they were missing something. I went with chile sauce and he went with ketchup; I think a sweet & sour sauce might be the perfect solution.
Speaking of chicken fingers and boys, just a reminder that your new Project Tasteless entries are due by tomorrow night. Super Bowl Sunday is a week away and I, for one, am dying to have a reason to care. Your recipes are really all I have at this point.
