I LOVE the taste of coconut...don't mind the oil flavoring a lot of my food. I don't mind coconut chicken, and I LOVE curry with coconut. I make what we call "Hawaiian Haystacks" which is basically chicken and rice. The rice and chicken mixture go on the individual plates to which a choice of many options is placed on top. The choices can literally be anything: pineapple chunks, coconut shreds, raisins, cheese, grated carrot, chopped celery, chopped onion, sliced olives, diced avocado, diced tomatoes. slivered almonds........literally, if you can think it and like it, it can be placed on top.
I make another version that is curried chicken and rice. We call this one "Snow on the Mountain." You put the same kind of toppings on it too. Coconut is a fave at our house on either version.
Just a thought about how the flavor of coconut CAN go with foods you might not think could before. I know you were talking about coconut oil, but I cook my chicken in it...not a lot, though, b/c I never 'fry' my food, except in stir fry. I like coconut oil in Asian recipes too.. Maybe I'm just odd, though.
