1/3 cup coconut flour
4 eggs
1 1/3 cups shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Cut thawed chicken into desired length strips, pat dry with paper towel.

Place coconut flour in a flat dish wide enough for dipping.

Put eggs in a another flat dish and whisk.

Put the rest of the dry ingredients in a third flat dish; stir ingredients until mixed.

Line up dipping bowls and dip chicken strips first in flour, then in egg, then in coating mixture.
