Cream of Coconut Chicken

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jacqueline in KY

I tried several recipes for chicken in Coconut Sauce and just could not find one that suited me. I adapted another recipe to make this one and am very pleased with the results. My father thought it was a little too sweet, but I loved it, just like I get at a Chinese restaurant.

Yummy! I found that if you remove the lid for the last 10 minutes of cooking, the liquid is reduced to exactly the right consistency. Thanks for posting!
