Fabulous! My only suggestion would be that I had a LOT of bread mixture left over and alos a ton of sauce for the amount of chicken. I definitely could have breaded and cooked up twice as much. This would make a great appetizer as well and was even good cold. I loved the fruity-nutty combination. I love different and delicious and this definitely fit the bill! A keeper. Thank you for the entry!
this is ok... but the title should noth say coconut first... for a really good coconut chicken, type in coconut chicken and find the one that kraft has on here .. it is excellent if soaked in ceam of coconut before cooking... that recipe with this crunchy fruit sauce would be excellent!!!!
A great recipe. Yummy!!! I had some orange marmalade on hand and used it instead of the apricot and it was delicious. The sauce was a bit to sweet for me, that's the only reason for the 4 stars.
This is very good. Easy to prepare and the sauce is great. I plan to make the sauce and use it with a coconut shrimp recipe I got from this site. A keeper for sure.
this was very good and easy to make. instead of the coleslaw dressing, i used fat free honey dijon salad dressing. I also used some chopped pecans in the coconut/bread crumb mixture.
This is so good!!! I made mine with chicken tenders and I used Panko bread crumbs. The sauce makes alot, I will cut down the recipe for it next time. The sauce does compliment the chicken very well though!!
This was awesome! I used the Light Marzetti Slaw Dressing, which worked really well with this recipe.
I took the advice of another reviewer and added garlic powder, onion powder and ginger to the breadcrumbs. I also added salt, pepper and cayenne to give it a kick. I will make this one again.
