    I've tried this tonight and it was extremely good. I did mine with boneless chicken thighs. I marinated the wet mixture with Ms Dash Lime Fiesta seasoning and juice from one lime. I mixed the pankos/coconuts with garlic powder, paprika and a tsp of salt... so so so so good. - 3/16/13

    Kitty, you can figure the quantities by looking at the nutritional breakdown and multiply by 6 servings:

    6 chicken thighs
    1 cup shredded coconut
    1/4 cup coconut milk
    1/2 panko
    1 egg

    I'm DEFINITELY making this! Sounds DELISH!

    Super easy! The first tme I made this it was kind of bland. Someone suggested used crushed croutons instead of bread crumbs for more flavor, (good idea.) I added a little curry powder to the dry mixture and it was WONDERFUL. It gave the dish a little more flavor without adding a ton of calories. - 1/20/10

    This is one of my favorite chicken recipes EVER! It was extremely easy to make (even for someone like me with no skills in the kitchen). The flavor and texture is incredible with juicy chicken and sweet crunchy outside! Will definitely make this again! - 2/9/11
