Try this recipe for delicious coconut-crusted chicken fingers with lime sour cream dipping sauce.


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, (about 425 g)

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper

  • 2 tsp garlic powder

  • 3/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Dipping sauce

  • 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream

  • 1/2 tsp lime zest

  • 1 tsp lime juice

  • 1 tbsp honey


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a resealable bag, place garlic powder and coconut; shake to mix well.

  • In batches, place the chicken strips in the bag, close and shake to coat.

  • Remove chicken from the bag and place on the baking tray. Repeat with remaining chicken strips.
