Top Review by Elmotoo

10 stars! Not many recipes, as much as I love them, actually make the regular 'rotation'. Especially since I rarely make the same thing twice. BUT this recipe.... was so fast & so delicious! AND it's beautiful! The turmeric plus the coconut milk gave it a lovely yellow hue. I added the lemon juice along with the zest so it was probably more lemony than it was supposed to be beut it was fantastic & loved by all. I used 7 chicken cutlets for 4 people & should have made much more. :o I served it over basmati rice with garlicky kale on the side. THANK YOU, Jan!! I think this would be good with any meat or tofu or tempeh. xoxo Bethie
