This is an adaption of another recipe. I recently took it to a Pot luck, the chicken bites disappeared quickly and everyone wanted the recipe. The chicken can be left in larger pieces for a main course, just adjust the baking time to assure that your chicken is fully cooked.
This is a pleasant change to the coconut shrimp. The sauce can be served over coconut shrimp for a refreshing change.
