Chicken coconut peanut nuggets are pan fried chicken with a crunchy coconut coating.
This recipe is a really tasty and healthy appetiser with a combination of healthy proteins (chicken and peanut) and low-calorie fruit (coconut).
The lightly golden and crunchy texture of the chicken with the added flavour of peanut butter and coconut adds gives it a perfect twist.

5. ¼ cup Peanut butter
6. ½ cup Coconut milk
7. 2 Egg whites
8. Olive oil (or coconut oil)
9. 1 cup Shredded coconut
