Directions

  1. Mix the cream of coconut with the hot water until smooth and well blended, and set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and place the chicken breasts into the hot oil. Pan-fry the chicken breasts until they have begun to brown but are still pink inside, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken breasts to paper towels, and sprinkle them with lemon juice, ginger, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the onions and garlic into the skillet over medium heat, and cook and stir until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken breasts to the skillet on top of the cooked onions and garlic, and pour the coconut cream mixture over the chicken. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 35 minutes.

Great base recipe - used a can of coconut milk instead - is the same as using coconut cream & hot water. Poured the coconut milk in with the onions & garlic and added 1/2 tsp of lemon juice, chilli powder, ground ginger, salt and pepper before adding the chicken. Without that, I found the sauce to be a little bland. But I definitely enjoyed those spices on the chicken.

I have been looking for this recipe. I left out the onions as my favorite dish at the Chinese resturant does not have them. I put walnut halves in this. Wonderful!

I had a tin of coconut milk and tried this recipe. I am allergic to bell peppers and did not want a curry recipe. This chicken was so delicious that is my all time favourite now. My husband was so impressed, he told everybody about the chicken. I did not add the cup of hot water, just simmer the chicken in the coconut milk. Next time I am going to add some mushrooms and bake it in the oven.
