1st Bowl: Mix flour, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
2nd Bowl: Mix water/milk and eggs.
3rd Bowl: Add coconut flakes.
4th Bowl: Add panko breadcrumbs.

For the Chicken:

Add each chicken piece into each bowl. Flour mixture, egg wash, coconut flakes, and breadcrumbs. Make sure to coat each well and shake off any excess.

Place a large skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Add about 1-inch of oil just enough to deep fry the chicken and allow it to become hot.

Add the coated chicken pieces into the hot skillet, then cook each side for about 3 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

Remove the chicken from the skillet and place them onto a clean plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.

Sprinkle sea salt flakes over the chicken tenders to add more taste.

Serve right away with sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!
