Coconut Lemongrass Chicken created by greg_ishere

Recipe from Food Network. BE WARNED!!!!! This is a very spicy dish. You may want to adjust the seasonings accordingly. I repeat, this is a very spicy dish. That said, everyone at my house loved it.

    We enjoy spicy food, but, following the directions yet omitting the chilis, the dish was way too spicy and salty. I used a total of three 15 oz. cans of light coconut milk and served it over unseasoned rice. It was then delicious.

    I made this dish for my 4 and 6 year old grandchildren who have pretty sophisticated palates. However, I omitted the chilis all together and otherwise followed the directions. It was way too salty. I used a whole can of coconut milk and it was still too salty; I will add another can when I get to their house. Since I'm serving it over rice, I'm hoping we enjoy the dish. Stay tuned... ...We had dinner while babysitting the kiddos last night. I had to add two more full cans of light coconut milk (for a total of three) and still it was a bit salty and spicy. The kids loved it! I served it over brown rice with broccoli on the side. Needless to say I had plenty of sauce.

    I enjoyed this dish but some may find it a bit too spicy. If you don't like the heat drop the chilly. All rounder good dish and versatile

    This is really good though it wasn't nearly as spicy as I expected and I used habenaro instead of chilies. I'll add even more spice next time. I did make a few changes but not a ton. I used pork instead of chicken because chicken is over $5 a pound and I can't afford it very often. I didn't have fish sauce so I had to substitute. At the end I decided I needed more veggies so I grated a carrot into the sauce and also added a grating of lime zest. This one's a keeper.
