3 pounds chicken pieces
1 tablespoon oil
4 potatoes, cubed

1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I was trying something different with this recipe and although I've had caribbean style food before this didn't meet the mark for me. I thought the taste of the coconut milk was over bearing and it needed more seasoning. I love the combo of veggies but not enough flavor. Add more salt!!!

This recipe was fairly easy to put together and the ingrediants seemed to indicate a certain "kick" to its taste but my family found it to be bland. We put it over rice and added more salt but I think the addition of a chicken sausage would have lended a nice flavor.

Total YUM!! I was wondering what to do with my frozen chicken thighs and this was sooooo easy. I cooked up some brown rice to go with it using the leftover coconut milk and chicken broth. We LOOOVED it. Our new favorite comfort food. Easy too we had all the ingredients on hand!
