This is different than the few similar recipes already posted to this site. It is included a cookbook I have called Chefs of Aloha: Favorite Recipes from the Top Chefs of Hawaii (and is attributed to Diamond Head Restaurant).

Top Review by Sydney Mike

The chicken breasts I used were large (about 8-ounces each) so I used just 4 of them but left the rest of the ingredient amounts alone, although I did omit the mint! Really enjoyed the combo of flavors & look forward to making this as a special treat for company! Definitely a keeper of a recipe! Thanks for posting it!

Directions

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a large bowl, and blend well. Add chicken breasts, and let marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
  2. While chicken is marinating, prepare the Tropical Marmalade by combining in a saucepan all the Tropical Marmalade ingredients (except mint); bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and let simmer for 1 hour or until the mixture reaches jam consistency. Stir frequently to avoid scorching. Cool. Fold in fresh mint, to taste; set aside.
  3. Remove chicken from refrigerator, and let drain. Combine macadamia nuts and bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dredge chicken breasts in flour, then dip in beaten eggs, and then coat with the macadamia nut mixture.
  4. In a heavy skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Saute chicken for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once. (Add a litte more oil if necessary, since macadamia nuts may absorb oil.).
  5. Serve with Tropical Marmalade.
