Aromatic Chicken

I tried this new dish last night, courtesy of my friend Rebecca, and it was amazing. And it was amazingly easy, too! Don't you love it when that happens?

Aromatic Chicken

  • 4 Boneless/skinless chicken breasts - or 8 thighs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/8 t ground cloves (I used a little more than this, and it was fantastic!)
  • 2 T Soy sauce (I used low sodium)
  • 2 garlic cloves - minced

--Mix it all together in a crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours. My chicken went in still a little frozen in the middle but they were done and just perfect after 5 hours.
--Serve over rice (I used Jasmine rice and spooned extra sauce over it and it was great!)

This meal got a pause and an "oh man....this is soo good!" from Scot after the first bite. Haha. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!!


  1. MMMM this really looks good! And I love that it's from a crockpot!

    I've never cooked with coconut milk...is the coconut flavor really strong? I had coconut milk (straight from a freshly-cut coconut) in India, and really did NOT like it. Still...it looks amazing!

  2. the coconut milk is not strong at all. Infact, Scot couldn't quite figure out what the subtle flavor was until I told him. So I would say more strong on the cloves actually(but that's b/c I put more than was asked!) Can't wait til you're in town!!
