Coconut Crusted Chicken Patties

I’m really loving this paleo inspired Whole30 plan! I’m 25 days in, 5 to go and will probably take just one day off and do another 30. As I’ve mentioned, my cravings are completely gone, but, I’m missing cream in my morning coffee and a slice of pizza on Friday nights. The options for delicious food that are compliant with Whole30 are seemingly endless though! For instance these Coconut Crusted Chicken patties!
