Coconut Chicken Fingers

Have you ever had coconut shrimp? I'm allergic to shrimp so I never have, but it looks so good to me. So when I saw this recipe (on a website that has since disappeared), I wanted to make it. I love coconut and having it in a savory dish sounded really good, and it is. I dipped them in Winger's Sauce, which I bought at the store. And it's baked, not fried. Next time I'll try a mango dipping sauce recipe that sounds really good with coconutty chicken.
Coconut Chicken Fingers

1 c. flaked coconut
1/2 c. flour
1 t. salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. onion powder
1-2 eggs 

Mix all dry ingredients together. Mix up an egg in a separate bowl.

Dip chicken fingers in egg, then coconut mixture and place on a shallow baking pan. Once all the chicken is coated, melt 1/3 cup of butter and drizzle it over the top of the chicken.

Now bake these in a 400° oven  25 to 30 minutes, turning all fingers over after the first 15 minutes until golden brown.


  1. I bet my family would love these.

  2. The looks good to me...but Adam wouldn't eat them Because of the cocnut.

  3. I LOVE shrimp and have had coconut shrimp and it is tasty. This really does look delish. I will have to try it out. I know my husband would love it.

    Allergic to shrimp - Bummer!

  4. Yum! This looks absolutely divine!

    I wouldn't have thought of using chicken. Great idea if you don't have shrimp on hand.
    You are so creative.

    Hope midterms are going OK

  5. this looks yummy! looking forward to seeing you all on sunday!
