Fry onions on a little bit of oil.
When they golden add chicken and let it fry for a while.
Then add coriander, garlic powder, tomatoes, cubes, Cayenne pepper, mushrooms and water.
In meantime cook pasta, rice or potatoes.
When chicken is ready add peppers and chopped coconut bar. Boil for a while longer till peppers are witted.
Serve on plates with pasta or rice, sprinkled with parsley or spring onions.

  • Coconut chicken taste good with roasted potatoes.
  • If you have time you can fry mushrooms on some butter and add them just before serving.
