      Macadamia is not widely available in my country so I used some hazelnuts and it was good. But I think you need the double amount of nuts and breadcrumbs to cover this amount of chicken. I had to make a second batch. However, it was a difficulty that is not important to the taste of the food, so I will give this recipe 5 stars because it introduced me a whole new way of cooking with bananas that I never thought possible. Very tasty chutney and extremely easy to make too.

      This is a great dish and the chutney is awesome. I did cut the cilantro down a bit because of personal preference. Good dish, thanks.
