unsweetened flaked coconut, or more as needed
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Nice texture, good flavor, but the recipe needs seasoning. I added about 1/2 tsp of ground sea salt and a few dashes of curry powder. I used ghee (clarified butter) instead of butter. The amount of coconut flavor is determined by the brand of coconut milk and by the type of coconut flakes. I used dried, unsweetened, and I believe grated fresh would have been much better. I will probably make this again. Thanks for posting the recipe.
It was bland but the texture of the coconut was great. I used dried unsweetened coconut. I would make it again but next time I will add some sea salt.
This was an excellent recipe and a hit with my family! I cooked it in coconut oil and had a hard time keeping it from cooking too fast and burning on the outside. This was not a flaw in the recipe just in my inexperience with cooking with coconut oil. I didn't use coconut milk for dipping, I used egg instead cause I didn't have any on hand. I also added panko bread crumbs to the coconut coating. It came out delicious. I added shredded coconut to my rice for a perfect addition to this meal! Thank you for a great recipe!
Good, simple coconut chicken recipe. I handled the chicken carefully to keep as much coconut on them as possible, and it worked great. Serving this over some lettuce and it is a healthy meal!
Thank you for this recipe i made a few changes i added curry and ginger and garlic plus .and crumbled some french crispy onions in to the coconut . and i used coconut mike and egg , i did mine in the oven and served it with mango salsa .it was fantastic
I've tried this recipe twice and the second time added salt to the coconut. I loved it both times. So did my husband. The butter just makes this delicious.
I used sweetened coconut flakes. Made grilled pineapple to go with the chicken and everyone LOVED it!!! Great recipe and will make again!
Mmmmm! This was so good. I had some fresh coconut and shredded it finely. I successfully used coconut oil in place of butter. My tip to those who have problems with it burning - it's critical to cook over medium heat.
