Recipe of the Week - Chicken and Coconut Milk

Canned spinach can be used, along with canned coconut milk.  Any cut of chicken may be used as long as it boneless. This is a quick Hawaiian favorite that can look as if you cooked all day.

  • 2 cups of coconut milk
  • 1-quart low-sodium chicken broth
