This was just wonderful, we've had this a couple of times now and it will be a staple in our home! I took the previous advise and upped the garlic. Definately go for the full chili quota, this is not a hot dish at all, but the flavous is just amazing. Served with rice and roti bread, what an easy and quick weekday dinner! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Fantastic recipe!! Made it for the first time a couple of days ago. It was very easy to cook, I will definitely be cooking this again. I used 4 chili peppers and de-seeded 2 of them. It had a little kick to it, but not overpowering. I guessed on the amount of coconut milk (1- 10oz. can), and would maybe use a little less than that next time. Thanks for the great recipe.

This was quite good! I used a can (15-16oz) of coconut milk in the spot where the ingredients have chicken being "cut into coconut milk". The nuts in this were sooo good! I might like something a little more, however, so next time I mught add in some type of vegetable. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
