      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.

      We really liked this, except I made several changes according to what I had on hand. I used 2 chicken breasts, 4 would have been better. I sliced them to brown because some one said it took longer than 5 minutes. I used yellow onion to brown and 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce since I had no salsa (also omitted red pepper since it was in there). I added chopped ginger to the coconut milk part and then the cooked chicken. Salt to cut the sweet of the chili sauce, and added my personal favorite, cilantro! About 3/4 cup of chopped cilantro. with only 4 breasts, there was lots of sauce, which as others stated, I love!. Served it all over plain rice and went back for seconds. I apologize for going so far astray from the recipe (forgot the curry and pepper) but this was great!! Thank you for the guide.

      Wow....the house smelled so great while cooking this and has a very subtle Indian flavor thanks to the curry powder but a tropical flair from the coconut and lime. It was really fabulous. I also found that I needed to brown the chicken much much longer than the 5 minutes specified. I made it exactly as the recipe indicated except I skipped the grated coconut. I can't wait to make this for company...I'll knock 'em dead with this one! Thanks!
