I have had coconut shrimp before but never coconut chicken, so I decided to give it a try. My family loves breaded chicken so why wouldn’t they love chicken coated with sweet coconut breading? This recipe is baked in the oven but can be prepared on the stove top if you don’t want to turn on your oven. Using my oven hasn’t been a problem here. It’s has been cold and rainy here and we still have snow in the mountains.
I served this up with two yummy dipping sauces. I will share recipes for those with you tomorrow. There is an apricot sauce and an orange-pineapple sauce. I also made a rice dish to go along with this too. I will share that side dish recipe with ya on Thursday. You get a sneak peak of those in this photo. It was an all around yummy meal. It will be a recipe that will frequent my weekly menu. Also, it is perfect for this time of year. Gives a nice tropical flair to regular old chicken!
