Created for Ready Set Cook 2006. A delicious take on a popular Caribbean-influenced appetizer! The Mango Chutney should be made 4-6 hours in advance. Cook times do not include the refrigeration time for the chutney.

I liked the option of baking offered in here in a field of fried coconut chicken contest recipes. However I found the strips not as crispy as I would have preferred. The mango chutney was interesting and added to the recipe. I liked the flavor, but I was left with over half of the sauce. I would definitely reduce the amounts next time. Good luck in the contest!!

I made this wonderful dish last night for dinner. The chicken was lovely, crisp, tender and flavourful. The sauce, was refreshing, tangy, slightly sweet, with a hint of mango and peppers. We enjoyed your dish very much, thanks for sharing.
