Coconut Fried Chicken:

Coconut fried chicken is a great replacement for our society’s love of deep fried chicken.  This is grain-free and low carb and loaded with good fats, antioxidants and clean proteins.  Coconut can handle the high heat that is used to fry effectively and although most the antioxidants in the herbs are damaged with the high temperatures they do offer protection against the formation of carcinogenic chemicals.

Eat these with some fresh, organic veggies to get more antioxidants with this meal.    The antioxidants will help neutralize any of the free radicals that were formed during the high temperature cooking process.  You will enjoy this healthy, great tasting, fat burning fried chicken recipe!!  Be sure to leave a comment in the box below the recipe to let us know your experience with this!
