In this brothy dish, the chicken thighs are partially covered by liquid and quick-braised on the stove top. It's an family-friendly dinner with a tropical personality thanks to the coconut and pineapple.

This dish was delicious! You really need the fish sauce though -- it's essential for the flavor and, when combined with the coconut milk, creates a wonderful aroma.

I made this tonight using boneless skinless chicken breast. I also used chicken broth in place of the fish sauce because I was unable to find it locally. The dish was good. Without the salsa my young children liked it very much. It lacked a bit of flavor in my opinion. I added a splash of soy sauce which helped. I think I was looking for a bit of salt on the sauce. I will make this again for my family.
