Very tasty I have done it with chicken pieces as a starter and with full breasts as a main. Better smaller pieces as big can dry out But well worth doing

Quick and easy, a hit with the kids. Served with rice and vegetables for a nice midweek meal. The chicken would be nice cold too.

This is lush! And so simple to make. One thing I nearly did wrong was add the coconut to the bowl of chicken. The recipe says "toss in the coconut", which I initially thought meant: throw the coconut in the bowl with the chicken - but it actually means: coat the chicken in coconut, like you're covering it in breadcrumbs. Everyone else probably read it correctly, but I thought it was worth mentioning, in case anyone else reads it the same way! Ooh and I definitely needed more than 50g of coconut - more like 75 - 80g.

Came back for more but this time went for the chicken drumstick version so gave it an 10 minutes. Could hardly be simpler for such a popular result.

It was tasty, but I wouldn't be repeating it just because it wasn't anything special. I did not find that that was enough coconut to cover all the chicken, and the underside of the chicken when being cooked got soggy. The lime gave a lovely taste and was well contrasted by the mango chutney.
