This rice has a mild coconut flavor. I served it with Macadamia Nut Chicken Breasts #30291 and a Thai red curry sauce. It was a perfect combination.

This was AWESOME!! Loved this special side dish, coconut milky flavor, the toasted coconut made this recipe outstanding. Served this with grilled fresh pineapple and grilled ham steaks. A meal to remember. Thank You!
