    Default Coconut-Crusted Chicken in an Apricot Marinade

    This was in our school newspaper and looked good, so I thought I'd share it!

    Serves: 2

    2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1 10-ounce jar of apricot jam (or 1 cup)
    1 packet Good Seasons Italian Seasons Dressings Mix
    1 7-ounce package shredded sweetened coconut (or 2 2/3 cups)
    2 large egg whites
    1/2 cup flour
    Enough vegetable oil to coat your skillet about 1/2 inch up sides.

    -Rinse chicken with water and pat dry with paper towels.
    -Place each breast in a separate quart-sized zip top bag.
    -Pound out until 1/4 inch thick with either meat mallet or side of aluminum can.
    -Open bags and sprinkle each side of breasts with 1/2 teaspoon seasonings mix.
    -Add 1/2 cup apricot jam into each bag; coat evenly.
    -Marinate in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.
    -Heat vegetable oil in skillet on medium heat for about 15 minutes before adding chicken.
    -Remove chicken from bags and pat dry with paper towels.
    -Take out three large plates (or bowls). Mix flour with 1 tablespoon dressing mix in one. Beat egg whites on another plate. Place coconut in the third.
    -Dredge chicken in flour mixture; shake off excess.
    -Dip chicken in egg whites, then press into coconut.
    -Turn over and press into coconut to coat both sides.
    -Place chicken, one at a time, into hot oil; fry each side for 2-3 minutes, or until both sides are evenly browned, but not burnt.
    -Remove with tongs and drain over several paper towels. Serve warm.
