    Rita~'s Note:

    I made this for Ready Set Cook 2006. This Easy, Sweet, Caribbean recipe consist of chicken strips coated with coconut and fried with a warm rum mango sauce with a little kick. Scotch Bonnet Pepper are very HOT! Be careful not to get in your eyes. Best to wear gloves when handling. Serve over rice for a main meal or as appetizers.

      Yum! We really enjoyed these coconut tenders. I think that using the blender made my dipping sauce alot more like applesauce, but no matter, as the taste was great. Next time, though, I'll use my food processor, to leave it a little more 'chunky'. The flavor was really good, from the tenders and the sauce, as the rum undertones were very nice. Thanks for being a creative force, Rita~, and sharing these tidbits with everyone!

      I loved the Mango Rum Sauce! The recipe was easy to follow, which is huge to me since I rarely cook. Thanks for sharing!

      Total Keeper. I baked mine to keep it healthier, and accidentally overbaked it since it's hard to tell in the oven when white chicken coated in white coconut is fully cooked! I baked it at 400 for about 45 minutes (my chicken was partially frozen too). It was yummy. The sauce for us was pretty thick, more like a compote, but still good. Thank you for a new recipe!
