10 stars! This is by far the best salad of this nature we've ever had. Not something I would tackle again on a weeknight, but in the end it was worth every minute. The French bread crumbs & sweetened coconut were a great combination. They cooked up nice and crispy while the chicken (I used thighs) stayed moist and tender. Veggie prep was a lot of steps and I would suggest that most of it be done ahead of time, including the dressing, but I'll definitely be making this again in the summer. It's an excellent hot weather salad that is just bursting with fresh flavors! Thanks for sharing this recipe, Savvy Hostess! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.

Absolutely delicious! I baked the chicken in the oven rather than frying but it still tasted wonderful. I made the salad early, poured the dressing over and kept it in the fridge until ready to serve. The combination of all the flavours was amazing. Everyone loved this meal and I'll definitely be making it regularly.
