you could take all the meat off the chook, dice, and freeze for sandwiches later.

Should work fine, Wonder - just add the chicken pieces towards the end as they only need warming. :)

I had planned on making this tonight but have had a last minute invite to have dinner with the inlaws so the chicken will have marinated for a whole 24 hours instead of 5 mins  :P

Looking forward to cooking this tomorrow now instead.

Hi Jo, Thank you so much for posting this. So easy and yummy! The whole family loved it and that is no easy feat. Made plenty with some leftovers for DH the following day. Can't believe it has taken me so long to make this. Will definitely be making regularly.

Hi Jo, I saw this on your website and am making it for dinner tomorrow night. Can you substitute the coconut butter recipe instead of the coconut cream? I was also wondering whether that coconut butter recipe can be used as a substitute for coconut oil in biscuits etc :-\

Looking forward to making it - has had some great reviews! ;D

Thanks Moo2!  ;D
 
Zelda, I don't think coconut butter would work so well - you can make your own coconut cream to use in it though, if you like? The coconut butter should be okay in bikkies instead of the oil, although I would probably use half coconut butter, half macadamia/grapeseed oil, otherwise they'll be hard and maybe the mixture won't be wet enough to hold together. If you're concerned about the cost of coconut oil, try buying it bulk online - say a kg or 2 at a time (go halves with someone!) - it's heaps cheaper. :)

Made this today for lunch except that I used fish in parcels instead.  Drizzled the marinade over the fish parcels and then sealed the foil.  Popped them in the bottom of the Varoma, put the veges in top, rice in basket and made the sauce at the end.  I thought it was to die for.  Unfortunately DH didn't like it at all.  I am really disappointed in him as I feel it was a restaurant quality meal.  He's a bit of a pie & sauce man ;D.  I would have loved to make this and serve it to friends, but it will have to be when DH isn't home ;D.  Great recipe, thanks so much.
Cheers, Nola.

Don't worry, my DH doesn't like everything I make either - especially if I put lots of garlic or rosemary in it!  ;)
Your variation sounds lovely!!! :)

A question on this recipe. 

I cooked this for dinner a couple of days ago, except that I substituted steamed fish instead of chicken.  I just loved it, (I mean super yum) but unfortunately DH didn't like the sauce at all.  I think it may have been the ginger in it. 

I had already cut down the quantity of ginger I put in, but it still got a resounding bleurrrr from him.  I just loved it, and am disappointed that I won't b e able to cook it again. 

I wonder if it would be o.k. to leave the ginger out altogether, or should I substitute something.  He has a rather sensitive tummy and can't have anything too spicy - what a pain, but I still love him. :D

Cheers, Nola.

I made this dish last night for the first time and it was absolutely yummy! The whole family loved it. I couldn't get over how tender the chicken was.
Thanks!  :)

O.k, stoopid question, but I was wondering if I could make this substituting peanut butter for the cashews and taking out the sugar for the sauce? I've already done my monthly grocery shop but this sounds so yummy!
