Toasted Coconut Maple Chicken


This may not be your typical combination of flavors for chicken, but this recipe packs a flavorful punch.  The Maple Coconut sauce is slightly sweet and tangy and has the perfect touch of nutmeg and the aromatics of garlic.  This is definitely not your regular ole’ chicken breast, I promise you’ll be preparing this one regularly.
