Rainforest Cafe Caribou Coconut Chicken
Rainforest Cafe Caribou Coconut Chicken with Honey Mustard Sauce
Make Rainforest Cafe Caribou Coconut Chicken just like they do with our recipe.
- 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 teaspoons Salt
- 2 teaspoons Sugar
- 2 cups Flaked Coconut
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup Flour
- 2 beaten eggs
- 1/4 cup Water
- vegetable oil for frying
Trim chicken breast so the pieces will measure 4" long and about 2 1/2" wide. Sprinkles sugar and salt over chicken breast and place in a ziplock bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
When chicken breast is ready to be prepared, rinse lightly and drain. Place coconut, cornstarch, and flour in a bowl and mix well. In separate bowl place beaten eggs and add water, blend well. Have oil hot and ready to fry chicken breast.
Dip chicken breast in egg wash and then place chicken breast in coconut mixture, coating well. Carefully place chicken in hot oil and cook until lightly golden. Remove and place on a paper towel. When frying chicken does not crowd and keeps a check on the oil so it does not burn.
The coconut chicken was served with the honey mustard on top of the chicken pieces, we have elected to serve the sauce on the side. For presentation and tasty side compliment.
Slice a ripe pineapple in 1/8" pieces and cut the round slices in half. Lightly sauté the pineapple in a nonstick saucepan that has been sprayed with a nonstick spray just until heated through. The pineapple will turn more intense yellow. Serving fresh sautéed pineapple is also great with a pork entree.
