Evil Jungle Prince Chicken

Keo’s Thai restaurants in Honolu, Hawaii have are sone of the best Tai restaurants I have been to. Thai is a wonderful cuisine offering a variety of choices. I tend to avoid any of the peanut based sauce myself but there are so many different choices to enjoy in tai cuisine. Beware, however, some of the dishes can be very hot. This Keo’s Thai recipe is a perfect example. This chicken recipe used a cocount based sauce with lemon grass which is very typical of Southern India and Thai cuisine.
