Coconut Chicken is Great!!!! - TropicalTraditions.com Review and Giveaway


Virgin Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, a nutrient that supports the body’s immune system. Lauric acid is also found in human mother’s milk. Dr. Mary Enig suggests the average adult include about 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil per day in their diet to take in an equivalent amount of lauric acid that a nursing infant would receive from breast milk






 
I had the opportunity to try out Tropical Traditions , Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil!!! I have tried so many different oils for cooking and ended up elminating the oil unless I absolutely had to use it (cakes etc).. My stomach gets really upset when I fry foods or use oil in amounts larger than a teaspoon so trying organic made me super excited! We have been using the coconut oil and today when I walked in from getting my son their dad was making chicken without the coconut oil and oh my gosh you could tell the difference! YUCK!
 
Here is my beautifully cooked chicken with Coconut Oil! Isn't it pretty!!
 








The day we used the Coconut Oil we were starved so we made
Chicken (with the oil), Rice (with the oil to keep from sticking), beans and bisquits.
 
 

I wish I could tell you this was my first plate lol...






 
 The worst part about cooking with oils is you end up smelling like you took a bath in nasty oil, but with the coconut oil you smell nice! First thing I noticed was my house smelt great!!!
 
The chicken was a nice golden color and I didn't even have to watch it as closely hoping to not burn it lol
 
 

First cooked chicken. I couldn't resist! :D






 
Excellent, kitchen-tested recipes can be found on their blog: http://www.freecoconutrecipes.com/ 
 Just search under “Coconut Oil”.
