So I’m going through a bit of coconut phase right now. And a chipotle phase. And a Beatles phase. And a cakey-sugar-coated-doughnut phase. Which is definitely the worst of all my phases. I can confirm that sugar induced headaches do exist. Need I say more?
I had coconut crusted chicken breasts a few months ago at an event I attended and ever since then, I’ve wanted to recreate them. After a couple of attempts I realized that they were too sweet and missing a little tang. So I added a little chipotle. Seriously, chipotle and coconut are a match made in heaven. It’s not too heavy on the chipotle, it is used more to create a balance between the savory and sweet side of this dish.
Now that I’ve done my obligatory this-is-a-food-blog-must-discuss-food intro, I can talk about what I really want to talk about. I mentioned it on Twitter the other day: the fact that Here There and Everywhere is most definitely, without a fact, the most underrated Beatles song ever. I mean, how can you not wish that Paul had written this song about you? This is definitely one of, if not the best, Paul McCartney love song. And that’s saying a lot considering he has made a career out of writing, literally hundreds of “silly love songs”. He also said that along with Blackbird, this is his favourite song he’s ever written. I’ll stop with the facts now.
Seriously. How can you not love that song?
I like to serve these Coconut Crusted Chicken Strips with a little more Chipotle sauce on the side.
