Chicken Baked (In Foil) in Coconut-Curry Sauce

Total Time

I'm saving this here, it sounds wonderful! Baking in foil keeps things so moist. I used to do it all the time and just got out of the habit, I guess. I'm going to try this one soon. Serve with basmati rice. From Cooking Light. UPDATE: I ran out of foil! So I can tell you that this works fine done in a covered baking dish, too! :)

I made this in the covered baking dish and it cooked up fine. I didn't have curry paste, so used 1/2 T sweet curry (we don't do hot). Also didn't have the pepper. The flavor was good, however the sauce came out pretty runny. I think I wouldn't use the chicken broth and would try different veggies, only bcz my kids hate zucchini and still wouldn't eat it. Made for Asian Unrated Tag 7-09.
