Surrender. Make Paleo Coconut Chicken

We are getting ready for a big game here Saturday.  Momma went to UCLA and daddy went to Stanford, and Wynston already prefers blue and gold. Gooo blue team.  Anyhooters in the sake of tailgating – or if you are with infant – bbq’ing at your house and tailgating from your couch, I thought I would share a delightfully healthy and delicious paleo coconut chicken recipe.


I literally could eat this chicken everyday.

Paleo Coconut Chicken


  • 1 package or about 1 pound of Trader Joe’s Organic Boneless Skinless Free Range Chicken Tenders (or you can cut up chicken breasts yourself)
  • 1/2 cup of almond or coconut flour (I prefer almond)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of organic pasture raised heavy whipping cream (optional)
  • 1 Cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Seasonings – sea salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika and lemon pepper if you so choose (play around with seasonings)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Rinse chicken
  3. Grease a cookie sheet with coconut oil
  4. Set aside three bowls – one for the flour, one for the coconut and one for the 2 eggs beat together
  5. Dip chicken strip in the flour, then the egg mixture then the coconut and lay strip on cookie sheet (repeat until all are coated)
  6. Bake at 400 for about 12-15 minutes depending on your oven.  I like mine a little more well done.
  7. Mix a little ketchup with cayenne pepper and dip away!

Today I woke up, boobed the babe and sent him to cuddle with hubs so I could get on with T25 Day 4. Today was ab day, today was tough. Shaun T really does not mess around. 25 minutes he kicks my donk three ways sideways. I am LOVING this workout series and already feeling 600% better about my life, like I am doing something small but so good for my body and sanity everyday without apology.

I realize my last post may have seemed like I done lost it, but I haven’t, being a new mom, adjusting to my new role and body is just a process. A friend commented on that post that theme of her new life of being a mom is surrender.  How wonderful, appropriate and fitting is that?


So today I am trying just that, surrendering to the fact that I don’t have control of my day and I just have to do what I can and make the little man happy.  Seems to be going well so far.


I am off to surrender these toes and get a pedicure while Gramma watches the sleeping angel.

All my love! x to the ohhhh Whitters

    Just a quick question. When do you add the seasonings? Do you season the chicken, or add them to the flour, or maybe it really doesn’t matter :- )

    What if I can’t eat eggs….how do I get the coconut to stick?
