Do you have any good recipes that use coconut milk?

I'm bored with the same old thing. I made crabcakes with coconut milk and they were so good. So I'm looking for more recipes to try.

  • Coconut Curry Chicken and Peanuts


    * 2 tablespoons butter
    * 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    * 2 sweet onions, thinly sliced
    * 2 tablespoons curry powder, or to taste, divided
    * 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into cubes
    * 1/4 cup coconut milk, or more if desired
    * 1/4 cup chopped peanuts


    1. Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat until the butter is melted. Cook and stir the onions and 1 tablespoon of curry powder for about 5 minutes, to release the juice from the onions. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving the juice in the skillet.

  • Google Thai food, you'll find many things that are made with coconut milk.

  • 2. Place the chicken breast cubes into the skillet with the remaining 1 tablespoon of curry powder, and cook and stir about 15 minutes, until the chicken is browned and no longer pink inside. Return the onions to the skillet, and pour in the coconut milk. Simmer for about 15 minutes, until the sauce is thickened. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.

  • Next time you make rice, use cocnut milk instead of water. Stir in pigeon peas. Serve with jerk chicken.
