This is a DELICIOUS recipe, and a pleasant break from the normal chicken fingers routine. Our family really enjoys coconut, so I bumped up the coconut amount by almost a cup and it was a good move. While we were finishing eating I got the idea to drizzle just the slightest amount of Hersheys chocolate sauce on it, and WOW> I will be finishing it that way in the future when I plate it.
