This is a great original recipe! I lightened it up a bit for someone who needed something lower in fat for medical reasons. The skin and bones were removed and the meat was sauteed in olive oil instead of butter. Chicken broth with 2 teaspoons of coconut extract was used to simmer the mixture to retain the coconut flavor. It makes a great meal served over rice.

I added about 2 tablespoons of ginger powder ,garnished with fresh cilantro and squeeze of lemon (which help bring out those Indian spices). I felt the recipe was slightly...flat without those additions, however I was missing Thyme....

Great recipe. I left out the saffron and green onions and threw in some potatoes (I love how they taste with the curry sauce). I only had about half the amount of coconut milk needed so I used the broth in addition to it. I also used about 2 tbsp of curry... misread the recipe but it turned out great so oh well!!
