I use a 1:1 ratio of Panko crumbs to unsweetened shredded coconut because, as I told you, I love coconut. If you want it a little crispier, just add more panko. I added the red pepper flakes for a little extra heat.

I didn’t really watch the time, so I’m guessing I cooked it for five minutes on each side. I just cooked it until it was a beautiful golden brown on each side and when I cut into it – there was no pink. If some of the chicken isn’t getting golden brown, just add a little more coconut oil.
