    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    Totally Tropical! I served this for our church at a Girls Night - Tropical Breeze event, which we held at a friend's house. We had the hot tub going and served this plus many other great dishes. Not your typical church lady luncheon! If you want, you can easily make this into a great appetizer. Cut the chicken into bite sized pieces before breading and serve with a bowl of salsa on the side. This works well with chicken thighs too, and those pieces are cheaper.

      This was really nice, especially on this abnormally cold spring day in Chicago -- it gave us a little taste of sunshine! I had to make a few adjustments, based on availability: I used canned/drained pineapple, frozen/thawed mango, green bell pepper, sweetened coconut (but I then omitted the additional sugar to compensate), and canola oil instead of peanut. Even with these changes, we had a wonderful meal. I really liked how it all came together in terms of flavor. On their own, neither the salsa or the chicken were particularly great (to my tastes -- my roomie loved it all, even separately), but when the two combined on the tongue... WOW. I think that the next time I make this, I will follow the advice of Chef floWer and adjust the amount of the breading and make sure that I have the oil at a lower temperature, since I also had a lot of breading mixture left over and almost burnt the chicken (my error... I'm not used to "frying" chicken :P ). Thanks for sharing!

      This was such a great meal to make during summer. We have fresh mangos and pineapples at the moment, so the Mango Salsa was delicious. For the Crispy Coconut Chicken I would make two changes. 1 - I would halve the coconut and panko mixture (I had to throw half of it out). 2 - I would slice the chicken in half or use a tenderiser to pat out the thicker bits of the chicken. I found they took a little longer to cook and the coconut coating was almost burnt. I used normal eggs for Hubby and Little Miss (DD) but used egg substitute for myself. For the last ingredient on your list I wasn't sure what type to salsa I had to use so I used a tomato base and that worked well for us. The meal made a complete dinner with wonderful flavours. Thank you Jess4Freedom
