    Zurie's Note:

    A simple chicken dish with a mélange of tropical island flavours ... Please read my instructions, as the Zaar software can be VERY strict with me and doesn't always accept my descriptions the first time round!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      *If the sweetened type is all you can find, use that as it will improve rather than spoil the dish.
    2. 2
      Please note that I meant the RIND of either 2 limes or 1 lemon. The Zaar robot hits me over the head if I say "Finely grated rind of -- ".
    3. 3
      Prepare all your ingredients and have it at hand, then it's such an easy dish.
    4. 4
      Put the rice on to cook with the water and salt.
    5. 5
      Prepare the onions and peppers. Heat a generous film of oil in a roomy pot. You could use a large pan, but using a pot is easier with this kind of recipe.
    6. 6
      Add the prepared onions and peppers all at once, stir well, keep heat medium, and fry until soft, stirring often. If it threatens to catch, add a dash of water. You could also use lower heat, put on the lid, and leave it to get on by itself while you prepare the chicken.
    7. 7
      Flour a chopping board lightly. Using a meat mallet, pound the breasts a little thinner, skin and all. Turn, use a little more flour on the skin, and repeat the abuse.
    8. 8
      When the onions and peppers are soft, remove from pot with a slotted spoon and keep warm in a bowl in a low oven.
    9. 9
      Add more oil to the pot if necessary, and heat up a little.
    10. 10
      Cut each chicken breast, across, in three pieces. Dip each into the beaten egg, then roll in the coconut. (Use more coconut if needed). Fry the chicken over medium heat, stirring and turning every now and then. It doesn't matter if the coconut comes off, but don't let it burn. Rather add a dash of water. Cook until chicken is done, 15 - 20 minutes.
    11. 11
      Add salt while the chicken is frying.
    12. 12
      Turn heat down, and add the garlic, rum, cream, lime or lemon rind, and the raisins. Stir through gently.
    13. 13
      Add the prepared peppers and onions. Do not let it boil actively, just bring to a simmer, then add the mango pieces and stir through again. Simmer very gently for a minute or two.
    14. 14
      Taste for seasoning: it will almost definitely need more salt.
    15. 15
      It improves on standing in a warming oven.
    16. 16
      Serve with the cooked rice.

      Well, ZEE, your chicken recipe is definitely top drawer. A well thought out recipe cleverly combining ingredients to marry sweet and savoury; good and delicious; more and all gone. Thank you ZEE, for stepping up to the plate and hitting a home run for the team. Five thumbs up for you, and another five for your creation...

      My family enjoyed this recipe. It was quite tasty. The hot pepper really got to my eyes and throat in the preparation stage - but was not too hot in the eating stage. I cut the recipe in half as there were only 3 of us eating. I loved the sweetness the coconut gave to this dish. Thanks for a nice creative dish.
