- Mix the coconut, flour and seasonings on a plate.
- Whisk together the egg, veg oil and garlic in bowl.
- Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers.
- Brush with egg mixture then roll in coconut mixture, patting to make sure coating adheres well.

- Guessing at number of servings.
This was really great! it was easy to make, and my three year old son enjoyed helping prepare it. It was delicious. I'll bet this would work if you substituted shrimp for the chicken too. We only had sweetened coconut, but it still turned out wonderfully good. Thanks for the recipe!
