Reviews for Slow-Cooked Coconut Chicken
Sort By :
"Try cooking whole chicken upside down(. take out wishbone first!!!! then cut down center of back and CPR crunch breast bone) dark meat juices flow into white. Then flip last 20 if cooked in oven to brown top, in slow cooker doesn't matter unless the dark meat looks like it needs juices. Try adding freshly squeezed lemon juice. Meat with bones will always taste better and half rib chicken breast wouldn't hurt. Maybe add pinch more seasoning . Add onion chopped too."
"I love slow cooker recipes, chicken, and coconut so I expected amazing results with this recipe but it was just meh. It looked gross, despite a wonderful aroma. It was edible, but I won't recommend it or make it again."
"It was just OK. Smelled wonderful cooking, but the flavors were bland. Wouldn't bother to make it again unless I added several spices like ginger, curry and perhaps mango chutney."
"I made a few tweaks to the recipe and my family enjoyed it. First, I lightly salted then browned my chicken. I doubled the ingredients for the sauce, added 2T of minced fresh onion, 2tsp of fresh grated ginger. It was served over jasmine rice. I will be making it again as it is easy to make and went over well with the entire family. I would also caution and say try to use UNsweetened coconut flakes unless you want a slightly sweeter version."
"Very easy and tasty, and yes, it does smell so good while cooking!"
