I found a great recipe for Coconut Chicken that I wanted to share with everyone today. Its really easy and yummy and was a hit with everyone. I served it with sweet potatoes and corn on the cob, but it goes with just about anything. Ready?
- 4-6 chicken thighs
- 1/3 cup dry plain breadcrumbs
- 1/3 cup flaked coconut
- 1/4 cup butter, melted (can substitute olive oil)
- Salt & Pepper (to taste)
- Cooking Spray
- Optional: tin foil
STEP 1: Season chicken with salt & pepper to taste.
STEP 2: In plate mix breadcrumbs and coconut together, and roll chicken thighs in breadcrumb mixture 1 at a time to coat well.
STEP 3: Place coated chicken in lightly sprayed baking dish and drizzle lightly with butter or olive oil.
STEP 4: Bake at 350 for 45-55 minutes until chicken is done.
Serve with baked potato and your favorite veggie!
TIP: Place foil over the chicken for the first half of baking just to keep the coconut from browning too much.
