    Paprika Pink's Note:

    Staightforward one-dish meal for a weeknight. Uses the slightly exotic Ume plum vinegar that I personally believe no kitchen should ever be without. Also uses the currently faddish but still delicious coconut milk. I use full-fat coconut milk because it's delicious and there are rumors afoot that that kind of fat is good for you. #winning

    5. 5
      Sprinkle with vinegar, oil, and spices.

    7. 7
      Use chopsticks to distribute spinach throughout casserole.

    9. 9
      Notes: Ume plum vinegar is found in specialty stores. It's very sour and salty. If it's not available, use any good flavored vinegar and add salt to taste with the spices. This is delicious served with a squeeze of lime juice and a simple "salad" of diced fresh tomatoes, lightly salted.

      What a very easy dish!!! And I actually had plum vinegar, thanks to a love of haunting Asian markets and buying interesting bottles :) I used chicken breast fillets, the only thing I would say, it took a lot longer to cook than I expected, so in the end we had something else for a light supper, I let this cool and finish off cooking by itself and we had it the next night instead -- definitely worth waiting for!! I'd say it needs about an hour in the oven, my oven at any rate. I didnt find a strong coconut taste, but I can say we really enjoyed this and I will definitely make it again. Thank you, PP, made for PAC Fall 2012

      This came out great! Thanks to reviewer Karen Elizabeth for the extended cook time note; gave it 45 min covered, 15 uncovered, then broiled the top for a few to give it some color. Skipped frozen spinach for some chard/snow peas from the garden and added a whole diced sweet onion 'cause I add those to EVERYthing. Used 5 thighs rather than 4 and guess-timated the rest but it tasted pretty darned awesome. Didn't have plum vinegar so used seasoned rice wine vinegar instead; came out mild but it's easier to salt/pepper/Sriracha afterwards. Will make this again!
