What Do You Mean By Coconut Milk And Coconut Cream?
A lovely ready asked me to clarify this portion of the recipe......
When you open a tin of coconut milk, you usually have a thick creamy solid bit at the top (that is wha tI refer to as the coconut cream) and a waterish thin bit at the bottom (that is the coconut milk I refer to).
So pour the waterish liquid from the tin in and add the thick cream from the top of the tin on top of the chicken.
