Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • 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.

    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.

    Good, but it needs tweaking.
