Very yummy. Wisked in a little flour to thicken. My daughter said it was better than the curry dish we shared at a restaurant the other day. This is definately a keeper.

Taste is ok but I will make a few changes next time including:

- remove chicken after it has lost its "pinkness"

- next add tomatoes and spinach and cook until spinach has wilted

- return cooked chicken to the pan and add coconut milk.

- let simmer for a minute or 2

I paired this dish with coconut rice (coconut milk, basmati rice, and dried unsweetened coconut flakes). Next time I would add fresh pineapple pieces to rice near end of cooking time to add sweetness and freshness without adding sugar. Also topped rice with chopped cilantro and a squeeze of fresh lime.

MY REVIEW

I changed it up a little bit because coconut milk is not something I can eat right now. Instead of the coconut milk, I added a tablespoon of coconut flour and 1 cup of half-n-half. The flour still gives it the hint of coconut without me breaking my diet! (Oh and I didn't serve it with the rice, I just put it in a bowl and ate it just as is.)
