Summer is here! Today is the first official day of summer. It is a scorcher in this area. I’m trying to stay hydrated. I even gave up my second cup of coffee because I was concerned I would get too dehydrated. Me + heat = hot mess. Thankfully, I baked this chicken dish before the heat wave hit.
I spotted this recipe on my Secret Recipe Club assignment for May. I was intrigued by the use of flaked coconut in the breading mixture. The coconut gives the chicken a unique kind of crunch. I paired the chicken with some mango salsa. The combination is simple and refreshing especially as a light summer dish!
You can find the recipe for the Mango Salsa here.
