- 1/2 pound frozen mango, thawed and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)

- 1/3 cup chopped red onion
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- Salt and pepper

- 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- Four 6-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Preheat the oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine the mango, bell pepper, onion, cilantro and vinegar; season with salt and pepper.
- 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.
