Polynesian Chicken Fafa

Polynesian Chicken Fafa created by Queen Dana

A skillet dish with chicken, rice and coconut. The original calls for boneless chicken breast, but I prefer chicken thighs.

    I really enjoyed this and thought it was very tasty. Next time I make I might add a little heat.

    This is a good basic dish with subtle coconut flavor. I loved the addition of spinach to the dish. I'm not familiar with authentic Polynesian food, and this may be an outstanding example of the cuisine. However, living in Texas, I'm used to bold and spicy flavors. So for my taste, this was rather bland.
