Recipe: Coconut Chicken and Salad

Hello there, welcome back! Today I have a recipe to share with you that I made last week and it was a hit! It was one of those throw it all together and hope it turns out ok and it did so I wanted to document it to remind myself to make it again!
Coconut Chicken & Salad - Serves 4 people

500 Grams Chicken Strips
1/4 Cup Egg Whites
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
2 Handfuls Rocket
2 Handfuls Spinach
1/3 Cup Quinoa
(How to cook Quinoa HERE! )
1 Carrot
2 Tablespoons Pine Nuts
1 Apple 
Drizzle of Pomegranate salad dressing

1: Get out two bowels and fill one with some egg whites and the other with the coconut flour
2: Coat the chicken strips in the egg whites with one hand and the coconut flour with the other hand and place onto a plate
3: Once all covered place into frying pan with olive oil on med to low heat and allow to cook, turning a few times (you don't want the heat too high otherwise it will burn the flour but not cook the chicken!)
4: While the chicken is cooking combine all the salad ingredients into a bowl - you can put anything into the salad you like but I personally find apple and pine nuts go together really well!
5: Cover the salad in dressing of choice - I am obsessed with pomegranate dressing at the moment!
6: Check the chicken is cooked by cutting on in half and making sure there is no sign of pink!
7: Serve up and enjoy!

So as you can see this recipe is SUPER easy and REALLY quick - what more could you want when asked to throw together a meal whilst starving! This is extremely healthy too, with the chicken providing protein and the salad full of vitamins and minerals; it will not only taste good but it will make you feel good too!
Let me know if you go ahead and make this and what you think of it! I like to think of it as a cleaner/healthier version of chicken schnitzel! Coconut flour is becoming more readily available too, but if its not in your local grocery store check out a health store!
