One of my favorite local restaurants in town makes the best coconut chicken,
it's my kids favorite. So I figured I would try and recreate it for them and you.
I have to say it turned out pretty fantastic and flavorful.
6 small chicken breasts cut in half - chicken tenders works as well
1 bag sweetened coconut
1 1/2 cups flour
3 large eggs
salt and pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper - optional
1 jar apricot jam
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
1) In a large skillet. Heat about a 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. While the oil
is heating. Season the flour with spices. Salt and Pepper your chicken.
Dredge the chicken in flour then dip in the eggs and coat with coconut.
2) Place chicken carefully in oil and cook in batches until golden brown
on each side.
3) In a small saucepan heat the jam and soy until cooked down.
Serve the sauce in a a bowl and top with red pepper flakes.
