Chicken Nuggets--Coconut Bites

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by pamela t.

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.
