"This was a pleasant surprise! By reducing the combined liquids as directed, the flavors were greatly enhanced ! No need to thicken as it was perfect. Topping it off with the coconut & peanuts made it ideal! I added fresh mushrooms since I had them on hand. My family loved the ingredient combination in this easy winning recipe. I know they will be requesting this dish again : )))"

"With a few changes to accommodate our taste this is a great recipe. I used cubed chicken breast, red pepper (because on the first try the green pepper turned grey) 1 Tablespoons of curry powder (because we love curry) 1 14oz can sweet potatoes well rinsed and drained and chopped cilantro in place of the coconut. Before adding the sweet potato and coconut milk I thickened the sauce with 2 teaspoons of cornstarch because I wanted a thicker consistency. Served with short grained ride it was delicious! Thank you."

"Takes a little more effort than most recipes we like, but the results are well worth it! Even better as leftovers the next day."
