      Very pleasant mild sauce! Because tomato-coconut milk sauces usually taste even better the second day, I doubled the recipe. We enjoyed this very much and added more cooked chicken thighs a couple days later. We still had a lot of sauce left over! Although unsweetened dried coconut is readily available, I prefer the mellowness of coconut milk. I will happily tinker with this recipe again. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.
