Wow, really sorry for the low rating, but this just did not impress. I couldn't even eat it, although others did. It was just like a yellow mess with a not-so-good smell. Maybe the problem was the coconut milk although I've used Trader Joe's brand forever and never had a problem. I think for those who don't like lots of spice/flavor, this is fine.
Needed to make a second dish tonight because the Kadon Pika I was making was too spicy for my son. I had to adapt a bit because half my spices are still at work from a cookout, but it turned out great. I recomend bringing the onions just to the point of carmelizing for a more robust flavor. Also since I didn't have chili powder I added chipotle powder, cumin, and paprika instead.
We enjoyed this nice subtley flavored dish. It was a pleasant change. I served it over basmati rice. The sauce was wonderful on the rice, the chicken was moist and tender. Thanks for sharing.
