This worked out pretty well. I have to admit that I was worried it was going to be over all far too sweet - but by the time it was done cooking, it was much more mellow. It makes quite a bit of sauce so I thickened it up with some flour near the end. I also didn't add as much coconut milk as it called for. My diners said the chicken was really moist. Thanks for the post CHC!
