Default is coconut chicken low carb?

If I make coconut chicken this way..is this OK for SBD phase 1 or 2? If not..is there any changes that I can make to make it SBD friendly?

1c coconut flakes (I could only find sweetened)
1 tbs breadcrumbs
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp paprika
salt/pepper
2 eggs/ 1 tbs half n half
chicken breasts

I rolled chicken breasts in eggs mixture w/ cream..then rolled in coconut mixture and lightly sauteed in olive oil.

How does this rate for this diet? BTW..it was FABULOUS

I'm unsure about the new SBD guidelines, but I do know that 1 cup of sweetened coconut has about 45 total carbs.

Here is a LC friendly version of coconut chicken. HTH

I don't think the bread crumbs are allowed in Phase 1 of south beach. In phase 2 they may be allowed in small amounts. Either way the best thing could be to look for a low carb bread that is full of fiber and whole wheat. Also south beach recomends finding low sugar bread without processed flour, good luck there. Try the deli section and look for small dense loaves

My only other concern would be the amount of fat in the coconut. While great on most low carb diets I seem to remember South Beach cringing a little at the saturated fat and total fat content of coconut. However this recipie also only uses it as a breading, so it may fall within your guidlines.

thanks 4beans!.. I really could have left off the bread crumbs anyways...and as for the coconut itself, since I am hypothyroid, was hoping to get a double whammy (good taste AND boost to metabolism)...as I have read here (on these boards) that coconut oil seems to help some w/hypothyroidism....

I'll try your version!! ps..when I added paprika, it had a great taste..you should try!!
