Coconut Fried Chicken

 Light and Crispy!



This is a new recipe. I never ate coconut fried chicken. I wasn't sure how this would come out. I am happy to say... the coconut chicken came out well. Light and crispy. You can taste the coconut, but it's not to sweet.


I am entering a recipe challenge at http://blogstew.net/foodfrenzy. Voting begins on April 15th. On April 24th voting ends and the winner is announced. Anyone can vote.

  1. Hi Christine,

    Great looking recipe, I've never had coconut crusted chicken either. Only shrimp, like how you added the hot sauce. Hope you had a great weekend.
