Coconut Pecan Chicken with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Coconut Sauce
Chicken and mashed potatoes is a classic combination perfect for any day of the year. I decided to change up this old-time favorite by exchanging white potatoes for sweet potatoes, using pecans and coconut to bread the chicken, and smothering everything in a creamy coconut sauce.
Coconut is incorporated into every element, combining all the different flavors of each component to create one, cohesive dish. You will love the creamy mashed potatoes with the crispy, juicy chicken. The sweetness of the potatoes and chicken contrast well with the smoky, earthy coconut sauce. Serve this with hawaiian rolls, and you will find yourself making this more often than the traditional chicken and mashed potatoes dinner.
