Chicken breast strips, marinated in lime juice and coated with honey and coconut, are pan-fried until crispy and golden.
We've made this twice now. To keep it GF, we use Cassava flour instead of wheat flour. We also use boneless skinless thighs instead. Always use coconut oil or other appropriate high heat oil. Olive oil should not be heated to this degree. The first time, we made this in the skillet as the recipe called for. Trying to get the chicken all the way cooked resulted in a burnt disaster for both chicken and pan. The chicken was cooked, the coating burnt, the pan burnt. Not one to give up, we made it again, but this time, we cooked it in an oven safe skillet for 3 minutes a side to brown the coating, then finished it in a 350° oven for 30 minutes. This was perfect. We had a nice crunchy coating, and moist completely cooked chicken. We'll make it again, oven finishing it. - 21 Aug 2017 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was truly delicious. Made as written but flattened the breasts to each be the same size for even cooking. This tasted like summer. Will make this again. Possibly next time I might cut my breasts into strips and bake into chicken fingers. Thanks for the recipie. - 20 May 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
