Coconut Chicken and Mango Salsa

Coconut Chicken and Mango Salsa ~ Taste from the Islands in both the Chicken and the Salsa and so quick & easy to make #Chicken #Salsa #MangoSalsa

I have not posted a coconut related recipe in while now and I think it is about time, seeing as coconut is on my top list of favorite ingredients.

We had this Coconut Chicken and Mango Salsa for the first time a few months ago, and I have been making it regularly since.

Deep frying is quick, but I bake them as well when I have a little more time on hand. I have to admit, deep frying, or any kind of frying in oil, might not be the healthiest method of cooking, but for some reason, food just turns out tastier when fried.

I also change up the serving of these Coconut Chicken fingers - mostly with the Mango Salsa, as they go wonderfully together, but now and then I would serve the Chicken with a dipping sauce, of which the 1000 Island Salad Dressing is our favorite.

COCONUT CHICKEN AND MANGO SALSA

Serves : 4

1/2 cup Flour + extra for dusting
1/2 cup Cornflour
1/2 cup Desiccated Coconut
1/2 t Salt

Vegetable Oil, for deep frying
4 Large Chicken Fillets, cut into thick fingers 

SALSA:

1 Mango, peeled and diced
1 Small Red Onion, finely chopped
1 Chili, seeded and chopped
2 TB Fresh Coriander, chopped
2 TB Lemon Juice

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Combine the Flour, Cornflour, Coconut and Salt - add the Soda Water and mix to make a batter of coating consistency.
2.) Heat Oil - dust Chicken with Flour and dip into the Batter - deep-fry Chicken until golden and cooked - drain on paper towel.
3.) Toss Salsa ingredients together.

Serve the Chicken with the Salsa on the side.

  2. I wonder if this would work with coconut flour instead of flour - I am off the gluten at the moment - might have to give it a try. Cheers from Carole's chatter
