Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound frozen mango, thawed and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • Four 6-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the mango, bell pepper, onion, cilantro and vinegar; season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg with 1 teaspoon water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place the coconut in another shallow bowl. Dip the chicken in the egg, then in the coconut. Press to coat.
