Easy Stew Chicken with Coconut Milk

This scrumptious Chicken, Coconut Stew will leave everyone cozy and happy. It’s healthy AND delicious comfort food at its best. This sweet and spicy coconut milk–based stew gets lots of bright flavor from fresh parsley which gives some earthiness ,jalapeno ,scotch bonnet,lime and Bone-in chicken thighs are a favorite go-to for weeknight meals, as they cook relatively quickly, are versatile and impart a lot of flavor in a short amount of time. Here, they are browned, then braised in a fragrant tomato-coconut broth flecked with ginger, garlic, cumin and a touch of curry powder. The result is a rich, stew-like dish, which works nicely served over white rice or red rice (which I prefer). A good squeeze of lime give the dish a bright finish.
