I cooked this chicken for my family, and every single person who cooks asked me for the recipe. It's a definite keeper.
The recipe would have actually gotten four stars had it not been for the raspberry vinegar that needed to be added at the end. It COMPLETELY ruined the chicken. I've used raspberry vinegar before, but this just did not mix with the chicken. It became so acidic and overwelming with the strange flavor combinations, that when I was putting the chicken onto a plate after letting it simmer in the vinegar, I literally began to choke on the steam from it. The odor of the spices and vinegar made my eyes begin to tear, and my nose and throat were also began to burn. My advice, DO NOT add the raspberry vinegar. Leave the chicken as it is with only the lemon pepper because it tastes great then.
My husband and I thought this was excellent, kids weren't overly thrilled with it. That being said, I will be making this again. Two reviewers mentioned the rice was mushy. I made mine in a rice cooker and had no problems. On the stove, you have to make sure all the liquid boils down and be sure to not stir it. If you stir rice while it's cooking, it gets very sticky. The flavor on the rice is very mild, but it's ment to compliment the chicken. If you want a more flavorful side dish, definately skip this rice. I thought it was great though. HTH.
I replaced raspberry vinegar with 1/2 cup apple juice and a dozen fresh/frozen red raspberries and one Tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar. It was absolutley delicious. Thank you for this new recipe to be placed in my cookbook!!
The other day my friend and I tried to make this recipe, and we were very dissappionted. Before we added the raspberry sause, the chicken was actually so delicious that my friend and I were afraid that the vinager sause may just ruin the chicken entirely. We were right. Not only did the acid from the vinager sause burn my friend's eyes as she was pouring the chicken and the sause into a serving dish, but the sause was not good at all. At first I didn't think it was too bad, but after eating it for a while, I discovered how terrible the sause was because it did not balance out with the chicken at all. We were so desparate that we actually dipped the chicken in raspberry jam, which did make it somewhat better. The only reason why I am even giving this review 2 stars is because of the chicken we had made before we added the sause. I advise everyone to make that and just skip the sause unless you want irritated eyes and a bad after taste in your mouth.
Delicious! The subtle flavors complemented each other so well. This is great for those who like something that's not overly potent once in a while. This is a definite keeper.
I thought this was excellent!!! I would suggest stirring the coconut milk before pouring, since it seperated so badly.
The chicken was tasty and fast. The raspberry vinegar made a nice sauce. The rice, however, was not as flavorful as I would have liked and made too thick by the coconut milk. I think a side vegetable, like snap peas, would make a world of difference to this. Overall I'd say this dish has a lot of unfullfilled potential.
