“Stew made of chicken, rice, onion, garlic, coconut milk, and spinach. Topped with shredded coconut. I serve this with warm tortillas. It reminds me of a dish we ate in Fiji.”

Directions

  1. In a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Stir in the onion and garlic, and cook 2 minutes. Mix in the coconut milk, water, rice, and chicken, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes, until rice is tender and chicken juices run clear.
  2. Stir the spinach into the skillet, and cook just until heated through. Sprinkle with coconut, and serve.

This recipe has many good attributes including quick prep/cook time and few but interesting ingredients. However, the result is a bit bland and leaves something to be desired--particularly salt and seasonings. I had garlic & wine salt on-hand and used it liberally with a dash of hot pepper. My co-chef suggested that chopped up red pepper might do the trick in the future.

When I was in Tahiti....this was in the buffet of a 5 star hotel. I asked the chefs how to make it...They use HAM/bacon and Chicken boullion and lots of vidalia onions. It is SO DELICIOUS THIS WAY>>>I WOULD NOT LEAVE UNTIL THEY LET ME TALK TO THE CHEF!. I use it with boiled potatoes instead of the rice...it is much much better..more true stew like.

I really didn't like this. It was so bland... Only substitutions I made were brown rice and fresh spinach.
