    I enjoyed the coconut coating on the chicken..I was surprised at how much coconut flavor came through and was very glad it did. I used the coconut milk to dredge as called for and finely chopped the almonds. I used slivered almonds and it worked great. The sauce was very flavorful and was a great compliment to the crispy chicken. I cooked my chicken for 35 minutes, didn't bother to turn them, and it was nicely juicy. Served this over rice.

    This was a pretty good dish. As usual, my wife was nervous when she walked in the kitchen and saw the apricot sauce and the coconut/almond "breading" on the chicken. She told me after we started eating that she was really surprised how good the taste was. I recommend this dish to anyone that eats chicken. I am sure that you'll love it.

    People have got to try this recipe! It was like we were eating at a fancy restaurant. I loved everything about this. The only changes I made was to use light coconut milk and 1/2 tsp of ginger (I just really like ginger). Thanks Rockin Robyn for a definite keeper. I need to have people over for this meal so I can show off! Oh, and this makes a nice 6 servings... not just 4. I have lots of leftovers!!
