3 TBSP olive oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips about 1/2-inch thick
salt & pepper
1 large egg
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup fine breadcrumbs
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (about 2 large Navel oranges)

1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 TBSP soy sauce


1. Pat the chicken strips dry and season generously with salt & pepper.

3. In a separate pie plate or shallow bowl add the coconut and breadcrumbs, mix until well combined.
