Dried coconut is one of those things that I know I don’t like. I’ve known this since I was young. But, do I actually know this? There are a lot of foods that I didn’t like when I was young that I’ve changed my mind about. When I saw this recipe, it just seemed so tropical and tasty that I decided it was time to test that dislike. For this recipe you will need:
- Red Onion
This recipe was pretty straight forward: chop everything for the salsa and throw it in a bowl; coat the chicken in flour, eggs, and coconut and cook. There were no difficult techniques of confusing directions. One thing I did that the directions didn’t mention is wear gloves during the prep. I didn’t want hot pepper juice on my hands, and I’m one of those people that is allergic to mango skin (something I learned one very confusing night when I lived in Hawaii). So, make sure that, if needed, you take precautions while preparing this meal.
The final result was, in my opinion, pretty tasty, but something I would spend some time modifying to better suit my own tastes. I’d probably add a little spice to the chicken to give it more flavor. I would also put more lime juice on the salsa. However, I won’t be making these changes because the husband really didn’t like this recipe. Like me, he is not a dried coconut fan. The only difference here is that I learned I can tolerate (and maybe even enjoy) it in some instances, but he is still a big fat “no” on it. Do I recommend this recipe? I do, but not if you aren’t a dried coconut fan.
