I thought this was a creative use of contest ingredients and loved the fact the chicken strips were actually crispy when baked! The breading is fairly thick, but it has nice flavor. I liked the nutty coconut taste and sneaking in the flax seeds made me feel as if I were accomplishing a plus for the day. The sauce was pleasant, but I would reduce the vinegar next time. We enjoyed the sweet & the hot, it was just a little tangy for us. Thank you for your creative entry & god luck in the contest! :-)
Loved the hot sauce in the buttermilk. Great idea, and gave a wonderful underlying bite to the meat. Unfortunately, we didn't care for the coconut and macadamias in the crumb mixture. I also didn't see the need for the egg dip and cornstarch. I had two batches, one with and one without, and we didn't feel there was enough difference to warrant the extra work. Thanks chef, and good luck in the contest.
