Baked Coconut Spiced Chicken Recipe

1- 1/2 pounds chicken breast sliced thin
1 can coconut milk
1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
15 gingersnap cookies, crushed ( In either a food processor or crush in a plastic bag with a rolling pin)
1/4 cup shredded coconut ( I like this fine and put in a food processor as well)
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoon butter, cut into small pieces

Pour coconut milk over chicken in a large bowl, refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Combine the breadcrumbs, gingersnap cookies, and coconut in a bowl. In two bowls add the in one egg and breadcrumb mixture in glass pie plates. Dip each chicken piece in the beaten egg and then cover with the breadcrumb combo mixture (breadcrumb coconut and cookies). Arrange coated chicken pieces in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.  Put some butter on each of the chicken. Pour some of the coconut milk into the  casserole dish to cover the bottom. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink, about 45 minutes to an hour depending on thickness.
