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.
