Coconut on Chicken was a new idea for me. Coconut reminds me of carefree summers around the municipal pool in Ceres, tanning with Tropicana Suntan Lotion and eating Coco Pops ice lollies! Coconut also reminds me of Christmases gone by with grandma and her cake tins filled with Hertzoggies.
With the extreme heatwaves we’ve experienced these last few weeks, I have not had any desire to cook. We basically live on salads, quick stir fry dishes or we braai. For some reason yesterday morning I had the craving for something tropical, not sweet, but tropical. The idea of crumbing chicken with coconut is not new, but it is new to me! So I decided on Coconut-crumbed chicken Wraps with a light basil mayonnaise to drizzle over it. The family went mad for it, I could have made double the quantity and they would have polished it. So problem solved. Coconut-crumbed fish and prawns are next to try, but for now, I think another batch of coconut chicken wraps will work just fine! It will make my children so happy to find these chicken strips in their lunchboxes!
