Baked Coconut Chicken

From: Eat Fat, Lose Fat

Yield: 6 Servings


  • 1 cup sourdough bread crumbs
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 egg
  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil


Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix together breadcrumbs, curry powder, salt, and coconut on a large plate. Pour orange juice into a small bowl and beat egg in another small bowl. Dip chicken thighs in orange juice, then in beaten egg, and then in breadcrumb mixture. Place prepared thighs in a buttered Pyrex pan just large enough to hold them. Melt butter and coconut oil together in a small saucepan over medium heat and pour over chicken. Bake for at least 1 hour, or until chicken is cooked through and nicely browned.
