Coconut-Ginger Curried Chicken & a So Delicious Giveaway!!

I just returned from a fabulous warm-weather vacation and made this recipe up remembering the amazing flavor of fresh coconut and strong, delicious spices coming together... definitely one of the most tasty chicken dishes I've made! It is a bit on the spicy side, so definitely reduce the cayenne if you don't like spicy food. I don't eat rice anymore, but it would be delicious served on top of a fluffy bowl of brown rice.

I also used So Delicious Coconut milk drink in this recipe - I really love this drink. I give it to my daughter to drink all the time and use it in desserts, but not that often in my cooking, so I was excited to use it here. It has a light and smooth flavor that is pleasing even if you're not that crazy about coconuts! I am quite excited to offer some free So Delicious products for you to try, so check out my giveaway at the bottom of this post.

  2. I've actually tried all of the So Delicious products and love them all. Yesterday, I could have said the holiday coconut milk flavors, but I found them last night at the grocery store. The Coconut Nog is wonderful!

  3. My 7 month old is allergic to dairy AND has a soy sensitivity. Because I am breastfeeding I have had to cut it ALL from my diet. It has been rough but because of So Delicious I totally feel like I am not totally deprived of everything I love. PLUS its delicious! :) Everything from the milk, the yogurt, to the treats..Its so nice to have something safe and healthy around instead of milk! :)

  5. Love coconut products, but not a fan of coconut water...everything else is delish!

    My 3-year-old son had severe eczema until he was diagnosed with food allergies a few months back. I have a blog that shares our family’s battles with eczema, allergies, and asthma (yes, lucky guy has that too).

    I think the key is to learn from one another, so the more information out there to the masses, the better. With this in mind I’ve started a blog hop for anyone dealing with allergies, eczema, or asthma, either for themselves or as a caregiver. If you’re interested in joining, please add a comment. I’d love to welcome you to the group. http://itchylittleworld.wordpress.com/blog-hop/


    Thanks.
