Aji Amarillo and Coconut Milk Braised Chicken

The Knight cousins from Florida have been visiting and we have been eating like kings. Unfortunately, we have demolished each meal before I could think to get a picture. Except for last night  . . .


Thanks to our friend Cory who sent me the link to the recipe  
(HERE )and encouraged me to try it. It required sending off for the yellow pepper paste but aside from that, it was an easy recipe -- chicken and butternut squash braised in coconut milk that is flavored with the fruity/hot yellow pepper paste. It could almost be a Thai recipe -- except it's Peruvian. 



We served it over rice and accompanied it with a spinach/grapefruit/ strawberry salad, dressed with vinaigrette and garnished with pistachios and dried cherries.


Dessert was The Ultimate Chocolate Cake (See THIS POST)
and coconut ice cream.

We will be in penitential eating mode for the foreseeable future. . .
