Ingredients

    1 chicken breast
    Salt & pepper
    2 TBS unsweetened flaked coconut
    3 TBS panko bread crumbs
    1 egg, beaten

Tips

Pounding the chicken ensures even cooking.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix coconut and panko on a large plate.

Place the chicken breast between sheet of plastic wrap. Pound until even and 1/4 inch thick. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Dip in egg mixture, shaking off excess.

Press chicken into coconut-panko mixture, coating both sides (this is not a thick coating). Let rest on wire rack or plate for 5 minutes so coating can adhere to chicken.

Place on broiler pan and bake for 15 minutes or until chicken is done. For extra browning, place chicken under broiler.
