Coconut Crusted Chicken

How I came across my inspiration for this recipe is quite funny:

I used to volunteer at a children’s library, which, when it is not toddler rush hour, can be rather quiet. I decided to walk around and look at all the books the lovely library had to offer.

I came across a series of parenting magazines, that, as it turns out, have amazing recipes! This was once of the first ones I saw and I knew I had to try and make my own version. Here it is!

To make enough for 4 people, you will need:

2 chicken breasts

1 tbsp canola oil

Salt

Pepper

1 tbsp garlic powder

1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

Dipping Sauce:

1/2 cup plain Greek Yogurt

Honey

Juice of half a lemon

Preheat your oven to 375 F.

Wash chicken under cold water. 

Cut chicken into strips. Put in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Add salt and pepper to your liking and coat your chicken. 

Take a Ziploc bag. Put the garlic powder and coconut in it and shake. 

Now comes to fun part. Put the chicken in the bag of flavour and shake it well, making sure that all of the pieces are well coated. You may need to do this in 2 or 3 batches. 

Bake the chicken for 15 to 20 minutes, turning halfway through. 

To make your sauce, simply add all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix. 

Serve your chicken with a simple green salad. 

Enjoy!
