This is a pretty good coconut chicken recipe that I've altered slightly. The original recipe can be found on allrecipe.com

Recipe Ingredients for Coconut Chicken

14 ounce coconut milk, divided
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast halves, cut into strips
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 egg, beaten

Recipe Directions for Coconut Chicken

  1. Pour half the coconut milk, the garlic, soy sauce, and lime juice into a resealable plastic zipper bag, and shake to thoroughly combine the marinade. Place the chicken strips into the bag, squeeze several times to coat the chicken with marinade, and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Reserve the rest of the coconut milk.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with olive oil.

  3. Place the shredded coconut into a blender or food processor and pulse several times until the coconut is ground into crumbs. Mix it with panko crumbs, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Place the flour into a second bowl, and the egg into a third shallow bowl. Shake excess marinade from chicken strips, and dip them into the flour to thoroughly coat; then dip into egg, and finally into the coconut crumb mixture. Place the coated strips onto the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake the chicken strips in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes.

  5. Bring the reserved coconut milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; serve the sauce drizzled over the chicken strips or on the side for dipping.
