This quick and easy Honey Garlic Chicken is coated in crunchy coconut and uses coconut oil and zucchini noodles to keep it healthier!
Welcome back to this Monday’s installment of “Asian food gone wild”
And by “wild” I mean “Healthy.” Whichhhh is not that wild. Sorry to disappoint.
And by “this Monday’s” I mean did you notice that we also had healthy Sweet and Sour Pork last Monday?
We may have also had an Asian-y inspired orange beef Stir Fry on Friday. Next week we might even have honey garlic instant pot noodles! CAN’T STOP.
So I figured I would start a trend. A trend that is also stopping today. Don’t come hither next Monday looking for some mango chicken with coconut cauliflower rice or N-E-THANG.
Okay, Now that we’ve cleared that up, welcome to Monday. A day that involves zucchini noodles. Because any day that you can say “zoodles” is a fun day indeed.
And, we all know, that Monday will take anything it can get in order to prevent the hater-age that even the thought of it produces.
Now, to clear something up (the sequel) I really don’t hate Monday’s at all. But, if you’ve been around the FFF block a few times, it seems like the TOTAL opposite. I mean, we even decided to call it “the day that shall not be named”
HOW-EV-ER. I am a total fake hata’. Let’s be real for a second. I work from home, in my Pjs. That does not change whether it is Saturday, Tuesday, Monday or … you get it.
I am just trying to sympathize with you because I <3 you. But, in the effort to banish the fake, I am going to end the hate.
Side note: My toes are crossed. So, if ya’ll come next Monday and there is some remnants of fake-Monday-hating-Taylor, you know why.
Now, let’s talk about a crunchy, coconut honey garlic chicken goodness.
I know what you’re thinking, because I can FEE-UL your eyes peering into my soul and judging me over the whole “fried chicken thang” that you’re seeing going on all ova your screen.
BUT. It’s just a little bitta fried. And it’s coconut oil. So, it doesn’t count because it makes your hair shiny. How can that be a bad thing? It can not.
Now, my crafty little peeps, don’t you try to go pullin’ a fast one on me and try to bake this. I tried it. So there.
BEE-SIDEZ, you’re topping it on zucchini noodles (FUN + HEALTH FTW) and a sauce that has ALL the naturally sweetened goodness.
I can also confirm that it is finger lickin’ good.
KFC is totally coming after me for that.
I should probably end this before I get myself thrown in jail. I don’t look good in orange.
But, you know what does?
This honey garlic chicken. Because, like those oven baked ribs, honey garlic looks good in everything.
Especially your face.
