Chicken Nuggets--Coconut Bites

This is so tasty, and it's a nice variation of "chicken, again?" Easy to make. Serve with dipping sauce--my daughter likes BBQ sauce and DH likes to dip these into blue cheese dressing. Nice appetizer for parties, too.

This was super easy to prepare. We enjoyed the little heat with the sweetness the coconut brought. Enjoyed it with BBQ sauce.

Well, I cut the cayenne pepper back to 1 teaspoon (At my age, I much prefer a little kick rather than a wallop!), but other than that the recipe was followed! VERY, VERY TASTY LITTLE BUGGERS! I served them with several dip choices, including a very thick cranberry sauce, which is the one I liked best! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
