Coconut Chicken, New Recipes and Other Holy Things

I just made these coconut chicken fingers for dinner tonight, and HOLY MOLY! I'm posting the recipe for these suckers so that you all can make them immediately. They were delish to the utmost.

A few notes:
  • I'm not a big curry fan, so I substituted the curry powder for paprika... It turned out great and gave a beautiful color!
  • My chicken cooked quicker than the recipe said. It only took about 12 minutes. The coconut burns quickly, so watch you chicken carefully!
  • I served these tenders with white rice and baked sweet potatoes. I wanted to make this dipping sauce to go with them, but I was out of apricot jam.

And on the subject of new recipes, here are a few I'm planning on trying out in the next few weeks.

I must admit, I'm a sucker for new recipes. My Katie lovingly calls me a recipe nerd, and she's right! (she calls me a medical nerd too, but that's a different story for a different time).

I like to try several new recipes each week! I actually have a hard time finding a balance between making the old standbys and trying out every new recipe that comes my way. Anyone have a great system they'd like to share? I'm all ears!
