This a favorite during the summer for my family! Just add a pasta salad with lots of fresh vegetables that are in season. The prep time will depend on how long you let it marinade and cooking time will vary depending on which pieces of the chicken you use. Sometimes I use a whole cut up chicken others wings and legs.

  1. 1. Place chicken in a single layer in a shallow dish. Sprinkle with salt. Stir together egg, juice concentrate and teriyaki sauce. Pour over over chicken, cover and chill at least 4 hours ( I do 24 for more flavor). Turn several times,
  2. 2. Place Ritz crackers and French onions crumbs in a zip lock bag, add coconut, onion powder, ginger and curry powder. Drain chicken pieces place a few pieces at a time in zip lock bag with crumb mixture. Place in a single layer skin side up in shallow baking pan, coated with cooking spray. Drizzle with butter.
