    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    A very different way to spice up the same old chicken! Plus a name that may unspire kids to get excited about the recipe! I found this recipe while searching the web. Minor changes have been made to make this even better! NOTE: One pound shelled and deveined shrimp can be added to or substituted for the chicken.

      I've seen a similar version of this recipe a few times and I'm not sure what makes it Madagascar chicken but it was really delicious. It came out a bit thin but I think that's because I used lite coconut milk but it was still delicious

      Great recipe! Made this for my family tonight. It was perfect for my dad who is on a low sodium diet and I took some out and put it in a separate pan for mum before the cayenne went in because she doesn't like spicy food. There is no better compliment then having no leftovers. I used legs (couldn't get breasts). The flavours were great! The lemon was tangy, the ginger and cayenne were spicy and the pepper was sweet Wonderful!.

      This was good and easy to prepare. The cayenne pepper and ginger give it some heat- so might want to take it easy if you only like mild spice. I used lite coconut milk to cut down on calories. Thank you!
