Very good recipe! I liked the way the flavors melded together. The chicken was very tender and fell apart. I was a little concerned that the chicken needed to be browned before putting it into the crock pot but it turned out fine.
This was an easy and delicious recipe. I added 1/8 teaspoon of curry powder for extra flavor. I also left out the flaked coconut because my family doesn't like it; however, the coconut milk was perfect as it added the flavor without the texture of the flakes.
I chopped two small onions and put them in the crockpot before the chunks of chicken breast. I used two boneless, skinless chicken breast halves instead of the thighs. I used coconut cream instead of milk; used the whole can and quadrupled the other sauce ingredients except the brown sugar, which I tripled because the cream was sweeter than coconut milk. I didn't bother toasting the coconut, left out the cilantro, and served it over black rice. My dad had thirds!
VERY easy to make. It did need some extra flavor. Added some salt, pepper and cloves to kick it up a little. Chicken was excellent!
This dish was not bad - it cooked up nicely and was tender - but I was disappointed that the flavor was bland. I followed the recipe to a T, but maybe if I had added more spices on my own it would have been more flavorful. I wouldn't make it again as is, but perhaps with some tweaks to the recipe.
