Recipe: Coconut Crusted Chicken

I really wanted Coconut Chicken this week but wasn’t satisfied with the recipes I found.  Tweaked a few and this is what came out of it. Next time I think I’ll marinate the chicken for more flavor, maybe add a few more ingredients, come up with a yummy dipping sauce, but my husband says this is a keeper just the way it is and the kids asked for seconds- the TRUE test! 🙂
