Oven Fried Coconut Chicken

I love curry dishes and any recipe that has coconut as an ingredient. This recipe looks very tasty. Prep does NOT include 1 1/2 hours it takes to marinate the chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first three ingredients in a large plastic bag, add chicken, and seal well. Marinate in your fridge for about 11/2 hours turning the bag occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  3. Combine breadcrumbs, flaked coconut, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Remove chicken from the bag and discard the leftover marinade. Dredge chicken in the panko mixture.
  4. Spray nonstick baking sheet with a cooking spray, place chicken on the sheet and spray it lightly with the cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Turn chicken pieces over and bake for 30 more minutes or until done.
  6. Enjoy.

Very good. I couldn't find Japanese breadcrumbs so I used seasoned.

I had all of the ingredients except lime juice. I substituted lemon, not as potent but this recipe was great! I enjoyed. I love anything with coconut. Panko should be used. Other bread crumbs are not light tasting like Panko.
