Coconut Chicken with Pina Colada Sauce

So trying new foods is something I love to do, because who wants that boring old spaghetti every other day! My new venture today was this coconut chicken with the Pina Colada sauce! Have you ever had the coconut shrimp at Red Lobster? Well that is kind of what I was getting at here! And it turned out FABULOUS!!! So I wanted to share the recipe with everyone so you could try it for yourself!

Pina Colada Sauce

3/4 cup sour cream
1 cup Pina Colada drink mix
1/4 cup crushed pineapple
1 Tablespoon pineapple juice

Gently combine the sour cream with the drink mix until combined. Don't over mix here. Fold in the crushed pineapple and the pineapple juice. Refrigerate until needed. As it sits it tastes better so I made this first.

Coconut Chicken

2 Chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 eggs
1/3 cup of coconut milk
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups sweetened coconut
salt and pepper
Oil for frying

Combing the eggs and the coconut milk in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, combine the flour, coconut and salt and pepper. Lightly coat chicken strips in the flour mixture and shake off excess. Cover in egg mix completely and then put in the flour again  to fully coat it. 

Fry the chicken in a frying pan until golden brown on each side and cooked through. You could also deep fry them, but I don't have a deep fryer. Drain on paper towels or on a wire rack while you cook the remaining chicken. 

Serve with Pina Colada sauce! Serves 3-4 people.
