Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk
This is an ideal recipe for me. I had most of the ingredients already in my kitchen, and only had to buy a couple of them. However, the result is a completely exotic dish that it wildly different from anything I've ever made.
My advice is: if the hot ingredients seem like they will make the dish too hot for you, omit them! I did.
This recipe can be varied, believe me, I know. I used chicken drumsticks. I fried them w/the spices rubbed on them for 5 min. on all sides, then baked for 25 additional minutes. I didn't have onions, so I added carrots and sauteed mushrooms. Everything baked together (after sauteeing) in a bubbling casserole dish. I served it with sticky rice.
My point? Use your common sense and take advantage of this great recipe. Improvise and have fun. I served this on New Years Eve for my husband and we were impressed at the authentic Brazilian taste. Thanks, Mlyin.
