Baked Coconut Chicken
I had a package of 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs and wanted something different to do with them so I tried this:
Baked Coconut Chicken Thighs (6 servings @ 4 carbs each)
Chicken Thighs (1.8 lb. package 6 count)
1/4 cup lc cake and cookie flour mix (or lc flour of choice)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. not/Sugar or not/Starch
1 tsp. ground chicken seasoning (I used McCormicks Grillmaster saltfree chicken seasoning)
2 egg whites
2 Tbsp. Blue Agave Nectar or sf honey
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 cup unsweetened medium coconut (approx 5 oz.)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Put coconut in a container large enough for dredging and set aside.
In a container large enough for dredging, combine flour, salt, not/sugar, seasoning and set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine egg white, agave nectar, and soy sauce.
Set up coating assembly line: flour mix, egg mixture and coconut.
First coat chicken with flour mix.
Then dip to coat with egg wash.
Dredge chicken in coconut to cover.
Place covered chicken in an ungreased 9 x 13 glass baking dish.
Bake chicken for 25 to 35 minutes or until instant read themometer read 170 degrees F.
Rotate baking dish every 5 minutes to insure even baking.
If coconut starts to brown too much, loosely cover with foil.
This made excellent chicken with a great taste and was very moist.
I think this would work very well with chicken breast or fingers too.
This will be a regular at my house.

KEVIN COCONUT CHICKEN
WAS LOOKING FOR A COCONUT SHRIMP RECIPE BUT I THINK
THIS WOULD DO FOR EITHER SHRIMP OR CHICKEN.
HAVE NEVER HEARD OF SUGAR FREE HONEY AND CANNOT USE THE AGAVE.
WHAT COULD I USE INSTEAD? WHERE DOES ONE GET SUGAR FREE HONEY?
ISN'T THAT LIKE SAYING FAT FREE PURE CREAMERY BUTTER
THANK FOR THIS YUMMY LOOKING RECIPE.
WILL REPORT AFTER I MAKE IT.
