Chicken with coconut milk and soya sauce

coconut milk chicken soya sauce

Last time I posted Tofu cooked in coconut milk and soya sauce, this time I cook chicken cooked in coconut milk and soya sauce season with ginger and lemongrass, it’s amazing taste, serve with warmed basmati rice, it would be your perfect simple dinner. I tried to make asian flavor touch on my dish, since I miss so much Indonesian cuisine that I couldn’t easily find in Germany. On this recipe I used thick soya sauce, this soya sauce is commonly used in Indonesia, you could buy it at Asia shop.
