Coconut crusted chicken

Instead of fried chicken, try making this healthier alternative.

I hope you enjoy cooking this quick and amazingly delicious dinner (mom, dad, and kid approved) as much as we did. Both my kids helped in the preparation. My daughter whisked the egg. My son arranged the three bowls and poured in the ingredients. We took turns dipping the chicken and making sure each piece was thoroughly coated. Best of all, we ate a yummy nutritious dinner together!

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 1 pound chicken breast cutlets (If you prefer thinner chicken, you can buy chicken breast cutlets or you can pound the chicken breast.)
  • 1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup unsweetened or sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 egg- whisked (My daughter practiced her fine motor skills whisking away.)
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Take out three separate bowls. Fill one bowl with the egg, one for the breadcrumbs, and one for the shredded coconut.
  3. Spray a baking dish with olive oil spray and set aside.
  4. Salt and pepper both sides of each chicken breast.
  5. Dip the seasoned chicken breast first in the egg, then the breadcrumbs, and lastly the coconut.
  6. Place coated chicken breast side by side in the baking dish.
  7. Bake chicken for 30-35 or until chicken is cooked through
