Chicken in Coconut Cream Sauce

Ricotta cheese in an Indian dish? Try it! You won't know it's there. Plus, it adds protein and cuts the fat in this flavorful chicken. Add a little dried red pepper if you prefer some heat. I like to serve it without the hot pepper, as it pairs better with a coconutty/vanilla Chardonnay.
