Spicy Chicken With Coconut

Recipe by katie in the UP

This is good! I use skinless chicken breasts...but recipe calls for chicken 'pieces'. This also is good with a couple of Thai chilies...instead of the dried ones!

This was a little too sweet and bland for us. DH refused to finish his. I think it would be better with the mentioned Thai chilies and maybe some fish sauce? You couldn't ask for easier prep, however. It went together really fast and easily. I used light coconut milk, and it was still very coconut-y, and the consistency of the sauce was good. UPDATED: While eating leftovers, I put cayenne pepper on it and a few splashes of fish sauce. It was excellent.
