My boys love the flavor but are convinced they don't like onion and tomato. I finely chop the tomatoes and use onion powder with great success while "on vacation." The boys pick a "vacation" spot, and we study the place, its people, traditions, art, food, economy, etc. This was an easy-to-prepare and authentic part of our "trip."

Whoa! The taste here is just so perfect! I love the mixture of everything in it! I scaled down the recipe to 1 serving using chicken breast but it's actually enough for 2! So cool! Lemon/tomatoes/coconut makes a great blend of flavors! I also served this with your Coconut Rice from Zanzibar . Keeper! Thanks! Made for WZT4.

This was fabulous, great blend of flavours and the chicken was really tender. The slightly sour ingredients offset the sweetness of the coconut milk and gave a great balance I really appreciated. Rather than start with a whole chicken I cooked two breasts as a very generous serving for two but used the described quantities of everything else, I think for a whole chicken it would make very satisfying meal for four, or six with a few steamed vegetables as well as rice. To fill in a few of the gaps I found with whole chicken breasts step 3 took about 30 minutes over medium heat while covered (probably would be more like 20 if the chicken was diced) and the simmering of the sauce in step 5 took 30 minutes as well but I used a low-medium heat so it kept at a moderate simmer so it reduced to a nice consistency.
