So this is a twist I took from a deep-fried coconut breaded recipe. I wanted a healthier style of chicken and this is what I came up with. It is so moist and delish!!

This is a fantastic way to up the flavor in chicken breasts. The coconut milk marinade makes the chicken moist and flavorful. Once grilled, the chicken is so tender you can cut it with a fork. You taste hints of the nutmeg and cardamom from the marinade. We love the crunch from the toasted coconut in each bite. It's sweet, salty, and savory. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
