COOK TIME
1 Hr 5 Min

This isn't everyday fried chicken. It's an oven-fried version that has some real pizzazz.

What You'll Need

  • 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 (3-1/2 ounce) can flaked coconut
  • 3/4 cup finely crushed wheat-cracker crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. Melt butter in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
     
  3. In a shallow bowl, beat eggs with a fork. In another shallow bowl, mix together coconut, cracker crumbs, lemon peel, salt, and ginger.
     
  4. Dip chicken, one piece at a time, in beaten eggs, then in cracker crumb mixture to coat. Arrange chicken in a single layer in baking dish.
     
  5. Bake about 1 hour, turning occasionally, until chicken is done and fork can be inserted into thickest part of chicken with ease.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The recipe sounds really good. I, too am a diabetic. I just tweak the recipes to suit my needs. THANKS MR FOOD FOR THIS WONDERFUL SITE!! Please lets all stop the judging & name calling. We all have so much to be thankful for & God blesses each of us. Put on a smile & share it with the world!

Tasty I did sub Macadamia nut oil for butter as it is tasty as buttery in taste. I also used Quinoa crackers again a sub that tastes great. To violetweed 9659907 YOU might have been a big fat slob diabetic (your words, not mine) that does NOT give you a license to paint EVERYONE else with your paintbrush. I have had been living with diabetes since the age of 6 months, and very few of us are slobs some larger than others. SO glad the YOU finally GOT YOURSELF UNDER CONTROL VIOLETWEED

I'm only giving it 3/5 because I haven't tried it yet -- but I think it looks interesting and I'm planning on trying it soon. I love ginger and coconut. And I can't let violetweed's comments pass: they sound unbelievably condescending. A "real cook?" How, pray tell, do real cooks change this recipe? Bake their own wheat crackers? Grow their own coconuts? You want a "healthier cooking version?" Try portion control -- one piece instead of two. Or margarine instead of butter -- it's not rocket science. Just stop the toxic-drip dialogue as it doesn't help. Big points to the Mr. Food staff for sharing a recipe that's unique and probably delicious. Thanks so much!

As to the content of this recipe..it is exceptional..and very interesting..from the old, same old, same old's..as to your comments, violetweed...no one really needs your cookbook, especially from someone that is so unkind and critical!... instead of encouraging those that could have different eating habits & better health...as it doesn't take an experienced cook to figure out how to save calories..by making adjustment s to a recipe! You are very obviously a very unhappy negative person.

I realize you make these recipes for non-cook cooks, but realistically don't you think you should at least be trying to educate people who try out your recipes? Okay, so you are using coconut flakes, 'grated lemon peel', 'ground ginger', 'wheat crackers', and BUTTER (ugh). This is the era of big fat slob diabetics (I get to call 'em as I used ta be 'em). At least consider an 'experienced cook' and 'healthy cooking' versions. No I'm not going to give you MY recipe as it is in MY cookbook, but all I can say about THIS recipe is 'tsk tsk tsk'.

This is Awesome my Family and I tried this and I will be cooking this again! My Family said I should of made more!!! Thank You for the Recipe Keep them coming!!!! :)

I am a new recipe hunter. I feel sorry for you violetweed, but maybe you need to pull out some of your weeds in order to see the flowers. Mr Food is trying to help the ordinary cook in thier own kitchens with no culinary schooling at all. You have no obligation to log onto this site. Go buy recipe books and stop bullying people who are trying to help others. You are the negative one.

To violetweed, You may have evolved as a cook, but your harsh, unjust words expose you as woefully unevolved as a human. Please keep your cookbook, your arrogance and your prejudices. No need for you to comment again.
