Coconut/Macadamia Crusted Chicken

Two of my favorite things- macadamia nuts and coconut!  They are a perfect pair in this recipe.  Pair the chicken with some steamed broccoli and quinoa/lentil mix and you've got a quick and easy dinner.

Coconut Macadamia Crusted Chicken

  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 oz of macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of flaked unsweetened coconut
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 egg, beaten

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a cookie sheet lined with foil with cooking spray. 
  • Combine macadamia nuts and coconut in a ziplock baggie. 
  • Lay chicken breasts on cookie sheets and baste with egg.  Then sprinkle with nut and coconut mixture.  
  • Place in oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes or until done. If the topping starts to brown too much, cover chicken with foil and continue to cook.
