Creamy coconut milk and chicken kicked up with a strong assortment of spices. Serve over rice or pasta. I also like to use this as a filling for wraps or pita bread.

This was so delicious, I simply made it as a main dish and steamed up some green beans to serve with it. I would have licked my plate if I didn't have any class- the coconut makes such a rich and creamy sauce for this dish!

Tasty. Served to dinner guests with basmati rice and had rave reviews. I wasn't thrilled with it but I certainly liked it. I might make it again.
