    Posted for ZWT 5 - Portugese Chicken recipe with influences from Africa. NOTE - most reviewers are noting that they use a full can of coconut milk as opposed to 1 cup.

      We absolutely loved this dish! The only changes I made was to add the full can of coconut milk and I added red pepper flakes as I did not have the chilies. The chicken was really moist and the sauce had a wonderful flavor. Adding this one to my Best of 2012 recipes - it will be made often. Made for ZWT-8-Spain/Portugal.

      I liked this and so did my husband. The only thing I did differently was put 1 tbsp peanut butter and I used the whole can of coconut milk. I thought it would be very hot but it was just right. thanks for posting.
