I made coconut chicken the other day. It looked great and tasted amazing, but the breading kept falling off. I dredged the chicken first in cornstarch, then in an egg/coconut milk mixture (about a 50/50 ratio) with a bit of lime juice and salt. I then coated it in a panko/sweetened coconut flake breading. The breading stuck to the chicken just fine during baking, but going to slice it, the breading just fell off.
I can't figure out where I went wrong because I followed the process properly- flour/cornstarch, milk/egg, then breading. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
