Coconut and Ginger Chicken

Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 1 hours   Rated:

This is so easy and yet so fragrant and pleasing. We served it with steamed rice and loads of coriander, and I think adding pumpkin, cauliflower, potato, eggplant or any other veg of your choice would work really well.

Delish. Mild. Family. Simple! A new favourite for weeknights!
