I have been looking endlessly for a great coconut chicken recipe and have yet to find what I was looking for so I decided to create my own. I was dismayed at always finding coconut shrimp recipes and being a hater of seafood....Soooo here is my creation and I hope you love it as much as I do! I just had it for lunch today!
