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!
This dish was fantastic! My only challenge was the rice. Normally rice is 2/1 water to rice. This recipe was 2.5/1 and it took forever to cook and then came out mushy but delicious. The chicken was flavorful (I made my own jerk) and the overall combination of flavors and textures was very satisfying. Next time I will thicken the Lime Coconut sauce.
This is a beautiful meal with great presentation. It does take a lot of time to make, so be prepared! Our favorite elements were the chicken and the coconut rum sauce. The rice was good, but I'm not sure I'd go through the effort to do it again. The coconut rum sauce, however, that is a definite winner!! Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9
