  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix coconut, flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder in medium bowl. Dip chicken strips in egg, then coat with coconut mixture.
  • Place in 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Drizzle with butter.
  • Bake 25 minutes or until chicken is browned and cooked through, turning after 15 minutes. Serve with Apricot Dipping Sauce (see Tip), if desired.

Keeping it Safe

Cut raw boneless chicken breasts into pieces when they are partially frozen to make them easier to cut and to prevent knife from slipping.

Apricot Dipping Sauce

Mix 1 cup apricot preserves and 2 Tbsp. GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard until well blended. Garnish with red pepper strips.

I wouldn't make it again just because it took a lot of work to handle the chicken (I live in dorms). I didn't make the sauce. My taste buds were confused though with the coconut flake pairing and garlic powder. *Plus, it was a bit of a messy dish. Cleaning off the coconut mixture after it had baked with the chicken was a pain. In fact, the oven dish is still soaking in my sink as I write (made it last night).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Great! But my husband and I like spice. I used boneless & skinless thighs and added 2 T of hot sauce to the egg and then added about a tsp of cayenne pepper to the flour and coconut. No butter, but if I was using white meat (which has less fat), I might try drizzling with coconut oil. We loved it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was delicious and fun to prepare. This was delicious and fun to prepare. I took it to a work Christmas party and it went over very well. I think the only thing that held anyone back is that they didn't recognize what it was right away. The sauce recipe made way too much for what was used at my party. Great recipe overall, though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite things to make and eat! One of my favorite things to make and eat! My husband and son (2yrs old) love it. The dipping sauce is a MUST! Note: I tend to need a little more of the coconut/flour mixture, so I just add a little extra of everything. Also, spraying the pan with non-stick spray helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did not brown, bland tasting Chicken was moist but not flavorful. Also, does not brown and the whitish color could be off putting if this is served to company. A food stylist must have broiled the chicken in the pic (or photoshop?).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was disappointed in the flavor of this dish. I was disappointed in the flavor of this dish. It was easy to make, and cooked up nicely, but very very bland. The dipping sauce saved it, but if I were going to make it again, I would have to come up with some other kind of seasoning to add. Blah.
