Step 1 – Salsa

Mix all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Step 2 – Tenders

Add the flour and spices to a mixing bowl and combine. Place to one side.

Place the chicken thighs on a chopping board and cover with clear wrap or waxed paper. Using a meat mallet or heavy object, hammer the thighs flat. Cover each side of the thigh in the coconut mix.

Heat a large fry pan on medium heat. Once warm, add ghee and allow it to melt. Add coconut covered chicken thighs and fry for 5 minutes on each side or until golden and crispy.

Top the chicken with the salsa and serve with a lemon wedge and side salad.
