100g plain flour

1 tbsp five spice powder

1 tbsp dried coriander

1 tbsp sea salt flakes

100g desiccated coconut

100ml evaporated coconut milk

2 each medium eggs, whisked

100g plain flour

2 tbsp desiccate coconut

2 each large chicken breasts, thickly sliced into approximately 6 pieces from each chicken breast

oil for frying

Cooking Method

Step 1

Mix the coating in a large bowl by combining 100g of the plain flour with the other dry ingredients, keeping the other 100g of flour and 2 tbsp of desiccated coconut to the side.

Step 2

In another bowl mix together the Nature’s Charm Evaporated Coconut Milk and the whisked eggs.

Step 3

Fill a large, heavy-based saucepan or a deep fryer with the vegetable oil and heat to 180c.

Step 4

To coat the chicken, first place the remaining 100g plain flour into a third bowl and coat the chicken in flour, tapping off any excess. Then dip into the evaporated milk and egg mixture carefully shaking off any excess mixture. Finally place into the dry coating mixture ensuring that the chicken is fully coated. Place onto a clean plate until ready to cook. Repeat until you have coated all of the chicken.

Step 5

Carefully cook 2-3 pieces of chicken at a time, ensuring not to over-crowd the pan. Turn the chicken over during cooking and these should take 5-6 minutes to cook. Remove from the pan and place onto clean kitchen paper to drain any excess oil. Sprinkle over some of the remaining desiccated coconut at this point.

Step 6

When all the chicken is cooked serve with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as satay sauce.
