COCONUT CRUSTED CHICKEN



Swiped this recipe from Jonna at “Get Off Your Butt and Bake”, a great blog for some super recipes!

I've always loved coconut on chicken and especially shrimp! Since some of my family doesn't care for the sweet concoction I halved the recipe, instead of the coconut I just added some panko bread crumbs. They used a Ranch dressing dip and I used a sweet orange marmalade!

My “strips” were somewhat larger than Jonna’s which is just a personal choice and to be perfectly honest a lazy choice so I didn’t have to cook as many!

I added some baked potato chunks made from the Lipton Dry Onion soup box...my family loves these as an addition to any meal.



Definitely satisfies my craving for anything coconut crusted!

My super fussy 22 year old would be all over this dinner like a fat kid on a Smartie.
Everything he loves.

Barb, the chicken looks fabulous. Great pictures ... I've never hear of the potato chunks with Lipton Dry Onion Soup ... sounds interesting and tasty.

I'm in the 'love coconut' camp too but, unfortunately, DH does not. This sounds wonderful and I love that last shot. Your idea of using orange marmalade sounds great!

I love coconut on anything. This looks like an especially good way to use it. I also love your "sticky" sauce.

I'd love it! Looks delicious!
Do you have duck sauce in IA? I like to dip my chicken in that too!
