Nutritional values

Chicken meat is one of the top sources of protein. The macronutrient is needed, among other things, for building muscle and burning fat.

Even though the coconut flavor harmonizes wonderfully with the spices here, the exotic aroma is not to everyone's taste. If you don't like it, you can replace the coconut milk with the same amount of whipped cream.
