Ingredients

Pineapple Chutney Dipping Sauce:
Tropical Fruit Paella:

Directions

Place oatmeal in food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Remove to a bowl and set aside. Place macadamia nuts in food processor and pulse until finely chopped but not stuck together. Add nuts to oatmeal and mix well. Add flour, thyme, and Parmesan to mixture, mix until combined. Season with salt and pepper. 

Dip chicken breasts in butter, then dredge breasts in oatmeal mixture until breasts are well-coated. In large skillet heat canola oil over medium high heat. Add chicken in and fry, turning once until crispy and brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Or just brown and bake in 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Serve atop fruit paella with a side of chutney dipping sauce.

Pineapple Chutney Dipping Sauce:

Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Serve with chicken. 

Tropical Fruit Paella:

Place rice in sieve and rinse under cold water until water runs clear. Drain well. In a saucepan heat the 1/4 cup olive oil and saute onion until softened. Add the lemongrass, rice and salt, stir well. Add broth, stir, cover and cook for 12-16 minutes over medium hat until rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Remove and discard the lemongrass. Saute garlic and ginger in remaining olive oil about 4 to 5 minutes, until softened. Add red bell pepper, water chestnuts, and fruits and saute lightly for 2 minutes until heated through. Add rum and flambe to remove alcohol. Toss with rice and serve warm with chicken.

Use extreme caution when igniting alcohol. Remove the pan from the heat source before adding the alcohol. Pour the alcohol into the pan and carefully ignite with a match or click lighter. Return the pan to the heat and gently swirl to reduce the flames.
