Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review

I have to admit, when I first received the Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil the image that popped into my head was hair care products. Having had our own handmade bath & body products business for years, I was familiar with it’s awesome benefits for making these types of items. It never occurred to me to cook with it! A quick and easy search of their website for recipes told me I was so wrong. As I’ve mentioned, Grandpa loves to cook, so we took a recipe, tweaked it just a bit and here’s what we made!



  • 1/2 Cup Ponzi Sauce (we use Kikkoman’s)
  • 1/4 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 TSP Ground Black Pepper (fresh ground is best!)
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cornstarch
  • 1 TSB Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Seasoned Salt
  • 2 Eggs

Tropical Traditions Coconut oil **For Frying*

2 hours in advance: Whisk all marinade  ingredients together in medium sized mixing bowl. Set aside. Tangy Marinaded Fried Chicken Recipe

Rinse / wash the chicken then pat dry. Take a sharp knife and make a few small slits in each piece of chicken, on both sides. Place the chicken in the mixing bowl containing the marinade and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Tangy Marinaded Fried Chicken Recipe After the chicken has marinated combine the flour, cornstarch, garlic salt, seasoned salt and ground black pepper in a small bowl. Beat the eggs and set aside.

Dip each piece of chicken in the eggs and dredge to coat in the flour mixture. Repeat until all pieces are coated.

In a large Tangy Marinaded Fried Chicken Recipefrying pan heat the needed amount of coconut oil at medium heat. Lightly fry  the chicken for about 3 minutes on each side. Or, continue to fry until thoroughly cooked. If you’re a *burner, like me, you can transfer the chicken to a baking sheet and bake it for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked.



And…. VOILA!! We got this:

  22. I have never used coconut oil but after reading about it I know I am going to have to give it a try. All the recipes sound great but I think my first try would be the smoothies.
