I really like this recipe, and I tend to double it or triple it every time I make it. This is a GREAT recipe to make for company as well or to have around for leftovers and snacks. I wonder what it would be like with chicken thighs or breasts? I love the crispiness of the coating, but I am slightly curious what panko crumbs would be like instead of bread crumbs...maybe too messy for the first coat? I love how this mimics a healthier fried chicken recipe...baked in the oven but still crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I wonder if the chicken drums would be even more tender soaked overnight in buttermilk - similar to many baked chicken recipes I have seen. I love the flavours of the spices and the coconut, so I would not mess around with that at all - perfection! Just a note....I tend to only make the drumsticks as I have another recipe that I like for Aloo Gobi. If you are looking for a one pan dinner, though, I do recommend this entire recipe!
I would love to make this with my grade 9 classes, but the 40 minute bake time is a bit too much for our limited time. Perhaps, I can recommend it to my high school colleagues or even save this one for the many requests I have had to teach evening cooking classes to either teenagers or adults....
Another great recipe from Canadian Living magazine! I wonder if I will ever get the chance to collaborate with their test kitchen.....how fun!
