Coconut Chicken Rice Bowl

This recipe came along by result of an evening of improvising, which I have to admit is not always my strong suit. But recently I’ve been trying to be patient, taste things as I go and learn from my experiences. I was still a little nervous about the sauce, but the coconut milk was already […]
