      By far one of the easiest and tastiest chicken dishes I have ever made or had...seriously! This was so easy to make and very moist and tender with a wonderful dipping sauce. I made exactly as written, using walnuts rather than pecans. I really think the coconut oil for sauteing gives this a wonderful flavor so please don't use any other oil...it was so worth it. As my grandson kept saying: "this is hecka good chicken"! Made for Fall 09 PAC

      This was really good and fairly easy to make. The only problem I have is that the coconut oil cost $8.96 for a 12 ounce jar. That being said, this will not be something I will be able to afford to make very often. We did really enjoy the flavors and the dipping sauce, but I don't think it would taste the same using a different oil. Thanks for another great recipe that I can use for special occasions gemini08. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.

      This is an incredibly good chicken! I used gluten free breadcrumbs made from rice cereal and pecans, otherwise made exactly as written. The sauce is awesome, and so easy to put together. Thanks for another winner!
