Tips & Tricks

Use small coconut flakes – Shredded coconut works too but the smaller flakes create crispiest chicken when we tested the recipe.

Pie plates make breading easier. We put the breading ingredients in three separate pie plates so we can dip the chicken in one right after the other.

Serve right away. Coconut chicken should be enjoyed hot, fresh and crispy straight from the oven for best taste! The longer it sits, the softer the breading will become.
