Sriracha Chicken Nugget

Sriracha Chicken Nuggets

Sriracha Chicken Nugget

Chicken gets old after a while and most people find it hard to stomach after eating six times per day for six months. I wanted to design this recipe so that you can still meet the needs of your diet and your goals, but make this process more palatable. Therefore, instead of a bland, baked chicken breast, this meal takes you back to your childhood because it will make you feel as if you are eating chicken nuggets. I put a spin on this childhood favorite by adding coconut and sriracha. This will provide a nice balance in flavor between the nuttiness of the coconut and the spiciness of the sriracha.
