We found the rice to be on the dry side with this recipe. The taste was OK, but given the amount of calories and huge amount of fat grams even in light coconut milk, the taste is not worth the high calories and fat.

Oh My Goodness. Empty-nesters enjoy this with extra thick boneless pork chops and sauteed slice portabello mushrooms. Perfect combination of flavors! EASY to make--great recipe for beginner cooks! I just should have though about how much this makes---us two old birds will be using this with leftovers for lunch for a few days!....Make it you will not regret it!

I added some cream of coconut and cooked chicken also. Used this as my main meal. Good but have to agree it was a little dry. I will add more coconut milk and chicken broth next time.

We make this all summer long and it always comes out perfect. We use light and regular coconut milk. It is delicious.
