I'm sorry I have no picture, but I discovered a can of coconut milk in the fridge today and decided, on a whim, to cook chicken gata (a Filipino dish). It's chicken cooked and simmered in a mixture of garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and coconut milk.
Mr. Ismi kept giving me weird looks the entire time I was cooking it, thinking that the mixture was not going to taste good.
Here is the recipe I used:http://www.allfavoriterecipe.com/adobong-manok-sa-gata-coconut-milk-chicken-adobo
It's actually quite basic, but my mother never added the extra things and my extended family doesn't either. Must have been a regional thing -- I never ate it with chili peppers or any additional seasoning, besides a teaspoonful of patis (fish sauce), which I quite dislike.
Anyway, he ended up eating three heaping bowls and I'm ashamed to say, I licked the spatula before washing the dishes. It sounds weird, soy sauce, vinegar, and coconut milk, but the resulting sauce is amazing. I used to sneak down to the kitchen around midnight and eat the sauce over rice.
It tasted JUST like my mother's, and I consider that a victory, because she is an amazing cook. Now, if my sinigang could taste remotely close to hers, I'd be set...
