- Remove chicken and debone, if desired.

Excellent and easy to make. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and it turned out great.
This was an unusual dish for us; obviously it is quite sweet. I was not impressed with the "sauce"; it is simply a thin sweet liquid lacking real flavor. I did like the idea of cooking the rice with coconut milk. But I don't think I will make this again.
I'll be making this again! The flavor was so good- and I liked the comment of adding the leftover coconut milk to make the rice. Thanks for an easy recipe!
