I'm not a coconut fan, but something about this recipe looked really good. And for all intents and purposes, it was. I read about 30 reviews before I decided to make this, so I didn't make it exactly as written. I sauteed the garlic first, and added in a teaspoon of minced ginger. I cubed the chicken, cooked it in the garlic/ginger, added salt and pepper for additional flavor, then set it aside. I added one diced habenaro to the peppers and onions, and sauteed those as indicated. I added the juice of one lime with the veggies. From there, I added 14 oz of coconut milk and the chicken to the veggies. I simmered the dish on medium low for 20 minutes instead of baking. Right before serving, I thickened the sauce, and served it over rice. My wife, who is pregnant and extremely picky about flavors right now, loved it. I thought it needed a little more heat, and I had to add salt, which I expected since I didn't want to overpower my wife's taste buds. Overall, very tasty for a coconut dish. Add shredded coconut for a more robust flavor since coconut milk is very mild. This goes into the recipe book, but it's not a "make it every week" dish.
