Keto Coconut Curry Chicken Tenders [with Sweet & Spicy Mango Sauce]

If you’ve ever been a fan of coconut shrimp, this recipe’s for you! The classic coconut shrimp gets a twist with chicken and a deep curry flavor that runs throughout. To match alongside it, we pair pork rinds with the chicken to bring the flavors out and allow for a crispy chicken tender. Never thought you’d have crunchy on keto? Think again.

To make the flavors of the chicken nuggets really sing, I decided that a dipping sauce was absolutely mandatory for this. A sweet and spicy mango dipping sauce was created. It’s super creamy and adds everything you want to complete this meal. It’s sweet, it’s got a great kick to it, and the mango flavor that comes through it superb. Think about curries that are made with mango chutney – but condense the cooking time and put it all into the flavor of a chicken tender. Plus its keto. This one is a must try!

    Ok–hate to try to edit you recipe but, I and my kid are allergic to coconut. Is there something that I can use instead?

    • @Hurensohnologe0711 on December 13, 2023 at 6:39 pm

      Just leave it out, I‘d say. 🤷‍♂️

      @@Hurensohnologe0711 I know. Just trying to see if I got lucky someone giving an idea but, you are right.

      You could leave it out and add in 1/4-1/2 cup almond flour instead

    I couldn’t find any mango extract at our store. Do you think orange extract would work in its place?

    • @RuledMe on December 14, 2023 at 12:31 am

      It might. It would change the flavor. The only downside with orange extract is some taste super artificial.

    Very nice.

    Looks so good!

    Any substitute for the mango extract? I live in Ecuador, but it is not available and I don’t want the expense of having it muled in.

    • @RuledMe on December 14, 2023 at 8:26 pm

      Not really to be honest, but the dipping sauce isn’t required. You could make your own sauce with whatever you have on hand.

    OMG! How did I miss this one??? I adore coconut shrimp and feel quite stupid for not having thought of this! I am definitely adding this for NEW Year’s Eve dinner/snack or New Year’s Day lunch!!

    I’m so excited – you’ve changed my holiday menus up!
