Very nice flavors, I made this for a working lunch and everyone loved it. The lunch was for 8 and I doubled the sauce. The sauce to me was the best part and their wouldn't of been nearly enough for my tastes. The sauce was really good and also over the rice as well.

I did use 2 breasts (bone in), cut into 1/3 pieces and then thighs 5 thighs, they were small. I am not fond of legs. I garnished with un-sweetened coconut, but lightly toasted; and also some additional scallions in the dish as well as some for the garnish.

Nice easy dish with lots of favor Thx for posting.
