I've made three times now and have come back to add comments to my review. The first time, I followed the recipe including the apricot dipping sauce (which was better than I expected). The meal was good, but not great. I did have a problem with the chicken not browning evenly in the oven even though I had coated them with spray butter. The second time, I used 1/2 cup of crushed saltines and a couple tablespoons of flour, added a cap full of coconut rum to the egg mixture, and doubled the seasonings - they turned out better. I made a few more adjustments the third time. I ground up the coconut a bit more because I found it to be a bit chewy previous times, I think in part due to the size of the flakes. Still added 1 cap full of coconut rum to the egg. I used panko bread crumbs this time with a heaping table spoon of flour, added 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, and then pan fried them. They cooked much more evenly this way, the breading came out much lighter and crispier... and they tasted FABULOUS! I also tried a honey mustard dipping sauce recipe that I found here, which I don't typically like, but found that it went really well with these. With my final adjustments, I would rate this 5 stars. Thanks for the original recipe, I love these!
