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.

Excellent dish! And the chicken once sauteed in its coating of coconut is delicious to eat just that way. But the dish combined is lovely -- a very nice combination of salt/spice and sweet flavors, crispy and soft textures. A very creative use of contest ingredients.

WOW! EXCELLENT! GREAT! This is such a flavourful and colourful dish! I wouldn't call it 'simple' as described in the recipe intro, but it certainly evoked images of the Caribbean in me! I really loved the amber rum in here and hope that this recipe will make it into the finals! This is the fitfh contest recipe I've made and it's by far the best. The only criticism I have is that the rice is IMHO not enough for 4 people and I prefer less water to cook it in. I also think that one chicken breast per person would be enough, but there are of course people who just eat an enormous amount of meat. However, the flavour of this dish is just FANTASTIC, and I would certainly consider cooking this again. As this is by far the best of the contest recipes I've tried, it does deserve 5 stars, even though I really recommend cooking 1.5-2 cups of rice for 4 people. Thank you so much for creating this recipe and good luck in the contest!
