These little crispy coconut chicken nuggets make such a nice change for a snack at parties, a lunch box extra or anytime fun meal. I was really impressed with the flavour of the sauce and could not get enough of these little crispy morsels. 1 chicken breast per person should be enough for a snack. You can do the same with whole breasts, just change the oven setting to 180 Celsius and cook a little longer.
What you need
4 chicken breasts, cut in strips or nuggets
1 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup marmalade
and 2 tablespoons mayonnaise mixed together
Heat your oven to 200 Celsius and prepare a baking tray by lightly buttering the surface.
In a bowl add the coconut, flour and salt, give it a good mix to ditribute evenly.
Whisk the eggs well in another bowl.
Dip the chicken pieces in the egg, shake to remove excess and then in the coconut coating well (you need a nice thick coating all over)
Place the chicken pieces on your baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes turning after 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Crisp delicious taste of the caribbean.
