    Most others liked this recipe, so I will have to try one more time. After brining the chicken was very salty. So. . . I added more sugar - too sweet. I fried in the vegetable oil and did not like the taste (possibly didn't get to 350?) Dumped the oil out and retried with EVOO - better! All that being said, the party loved the chicken and I will attribute the elevation to the wonderful honey mustard sauce recommended. I will try once more.

    Hi Molly, I must say this is very good! I cooked it exactly like your recipe says. I used an electric skillet for the frying and the 350 degrees stayed steady so didn't have a problem with burning. We will have tis again for sure! Hope you like the photos I added to this recipe as you requested.

    Very good recipe - the coconut adds just the right flavor and texture to the chicken. Also another great dipping idea... sweet & sour sauce!!! Pure heaven
