This really was quite delicious. The chicken did cook up tender and juicy, but I think a little more flavour would really add another dimension to this dish and I would probably stir in some red curry paste and garlic into the coconut milk. I used spinach in place of taro leaf and sweet potato instead of the tuber. Thanks.

I was really surprise how delicate and tasty this dish was. I thught it would be little to fade, but it was really perfect as it was. Also the cream consistency was perfect.
We enjoyed it very much and will be a keeper.
