      Yum, this was delish! I made this for my family that was visiting and everyone loved it - young and old. Although the rice was very good, I can see myself making just the chicken by itself - it was moist and flavorful. A bit involved to make, but worth the effort. Thanks for posting!

      This was delicious and I loved the fact that it was an entire meal, saving me from having to come up with sides or 'what should I serve with this?' The chicken was moist and flavourful, the rice delightful, and the lime rum sauce got everyone's attention. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Just wanted to comment on DOC Jan's comment about the rice being mushy. The ingredients list is a little tricky to follow in this part, but I believe you are supposed to use 3/4 to 1 C coconut milk and 1 to 1.25 C broth--2C total depending on your taste. Coconut milk is thick; I make a similar rice dish and always find the proportion of water to be a bit tricky. Also when it's done it doesn't look done because there is coconut oil on the top. I tilt the pan and if only a tiny bit of water shows I turn off the heat and let it sit on the burner, covered, for 15 minutes or so. It can sit for an hour and still be hot. I will be trying this recipe soon, sounds fantastic!
