Coconut Chicken with Citrus Dipping Sauce

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare chicken. I'm not sure why I hadn't thought of making this a long time ago. I was clearly missing out! Both my husband and I love coconut shrimp and this was just as good if not better! It is also weight watcher friendly. I served it with a spicy citrus dipping sauce consisting of a few ingredients that I had on hand. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

Coconut Chicken with Citrus Dipping Sauce
Adapted from All recipes.Com
Serves 4
Cal 229, Fat 5.2g, Carbs 11.5g, Protein 32g

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs (I used panko)
1/3 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup melted butter (I did omit this since I am dieting, instead I used a few spritzes of I can't believe it's not butter spray)

Sprinkle the chicken with salt & pepper. Mix the breadcrumbs and coconut together. Roll the chicken in the coconut mixture.
Place your chicken in a lightly sprayed baking pan and drizzle it with the butter.

Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until juices run clear. Enjoy!
