Chicken tenders came out great, and my friends liked them too. I used only enough oil to simmer the chicken half-way and then flipped them after about two minutes. I also used three whole eggs as opposed to egg whites. If you make many batches, you might have to change your oil because some coconut shaves remain and become too browned. Great dish! I ate it with corn.

Delicious, but I truly need to cut back on my fried food consumption and rediscover my body. Not that it's hard to lose it, but she's been gone for so long that I may have to instigate a missing person's investigation. It would go like this: Officer: When did you last see her? Me: Approximately 20 years ago. Made for All You Can Cook--Special Event Tag.

This was really good! Next time I will just use hot sauce and garlic with the preserves and leave out the chili powder for the dipping sauce. The dipping sauce went well with sweet/spicy chicken - enjoyed this dish!

Excellent Recipe!! I cut up two fairly large chicken breasts and figured we would have enough left over for an appetizer another day.... hmmmmm... not one bite left!! Only two changes: 1- I usually brine or marinate chicken before cooking to keep it moist, so I put the cut up pieces in a zip bag with about 1/2 cup coconut milk and put in the refrig for an hour or so before proceeding. The other change was to use a whole egg instead of the egg whites simply because I only had 2 eggs on hand! We really loved this, but like most folks we don't indulge in fried foods often. I will try it in the oven next time with some sprayed on oil, so we can enjoy it frequently! Thanks for my new favorite Chicken recipe, Jen!

I made this dish for a family get together so needed quite alot, I decided to oven cook coated portions and hey presto, worked a treat. Cannot upload photo as it was such a hit it went too quickly, everyone loved it. My marinade was balsamic and dark soy sauce.

Made chicken as recipe stated except I mixed the coconut with some panko break crumbs. I used the chicken in a salad with slivered almonds, strawberries and light poppyseed dressing...yummy...kids loved it as well.

ABSOLUTELY DEEElicious!!!! Kids did not love it, but who cares? I did and my wife did! The apricot dipping sauce was WONderful!! It was a perfect storm of flavor - Just enough heat, just enough garlic, just enough sweet, just enough savory...MMMMMMM!!! The frying made the coconut crispy and wonderful. This could probably be baked with no loss of flavor. I will try that next time, because with this recipe, there WILL be a next time!!!

Absolutely amazing! The sweetness of the coconut works perfectly with all the spicyness. Though, I thought the sauce had a bit too much of a vinegar taste, so I will add less next time. Still tastes amazing, though! Will use this recipe many more times in the future. :)

Outstanding Chicken dish. I used my deep fryer. I loved using the cornstarch instead of flour/breadcrumbs--the corn starch was so easy to work with and less sticky! We served this with Jasmine Rice With Garlic, Ginger, and Cilantro-- which is a mild yet flavourful rice pilaf. There were no leftovers. We will make again and I want to try the recipe with shrimp or lobster bites-thanks!!
