This was wonderful and unique! Per the previous reviewer, I served over "Coconut Rice" (also found on this site) and the combination of flavors was great (salt& sweet)! I've never had anything like it but I'll be making this tasty dish again! Thanks Evelyn for sharing this new way to cook chicken!

The chicken was moist, but lacked flavor. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time might add some garlic or other seasonings. It tasted like boiled chicken with onions.
