Chicken In Coconut Sauce

    Another winner by breezermom. This is a lovely curry. We really enjoyed all the flavors in this dish. So many different flavors, great textures. Made this quick and easy to make dish exactly as written, but ommited the nuts....as dh is allergic. I did use chicken with the skin and bone in for another layer of flavor. I served this chicken dish with a steamed jasmin rice that had diced tomatoes, green onions and toasted coconut added to it, worked beautifully with this dish. What a great meal with some nice fresh green beans and Indian Skillet Bread. Thanks for sharing a dish that I will make again.

    Chicken in Coconut Sauce,In India, this recipe is known as malai murgh. The chicken simmers in a thick, spicy coconut sauce. If you want to use skinless chicken, you can, but please use bone in for best flavor. Wonderful for serving with Chapati, Indian flat bread.,Another winner by breezermom. This is a lovely curry.
