Yeah I know it’s a mouthful to say, it’s also a great mouthful to eat!

It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s delicious.. The 3 things I love in a meal.

So here’s how to make it:

2 chicken breasts cut into strips

1/2 cup pepitas

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

2-3 teaspoons smoked paprika (this could be changed to any spice you like)

salt/pepper to taste

2 eggs

oil for shallow frying

Directions:

  1. Combine pepitas and coconut and blend until breadcrumb consistency
  2. Mix paprika, salt and pepper into the pepita and coconut mix
  3. Whisk eggs into a shallow bowl for coating the chicken
  4. Coat the chicken in the egg, then in the pepita and coconut mix
  5. Place into a fry pan for shallow frying with your oil (about 7-10 minutes each side depending on chicken strip size) or could be oven baked
  6. Serve with a nice big salad, or even have the strips cold for a snack
