Top Review by Sexy Chef Sheri

Well, I really wanted this to be better. It was good, but still lacking in flavor. I followed the directions with a few minor modifications. I used whole coconut milk instead of light, marinating the breasts for about 2 hours. And, I cooked it for 50 minutes at 350, turing the breasts once half way through. Cooking them at 400 for an hour would have dried them out completely. Still, the chicken came out bland, with very little coconut flavoring. The bottom of the chicken lost the coconut coating, because it stuck to the parchment paper and ripped right off when I turned them. I am thinking of trying this again, but browning the breasts in a bit of oil before transferring them to an oven. (Coconut oil would probably contribute the best flavor, but I'm not sure where I could get that.) Overall, it was just ok for us. But thanks anyway!
