NOTE:
Usually chicken or fish that is coated with coconut it’s done with the un-sweetened kind. But I like the heat of the hot sauce together with the sweetness of the coconut. Takes it to a whole other level.
You can use the un-sweetened coconut if you prefer.
I served this with homemade coleslaw and potato coins.
This is delicious with shrimp too!
