Chicken, Lime and Coconut Custard

While preparing this dish, the the smell was wonderful, with the lime juice and coconut it was so fresh, almost Thai like.

I had the urge to throw some coriander in it but resisted. I followed Bee's recipe exactly but sprinkled the stuff over the top before serving instead! Bee says to cook it until it still wobbles...think mine was a little overcooked, it didn't wobble and was a little dry. Maybe my bain Marie was a little too deep or my oven a little hotter, next time I will reduce the hot water line and turn my oven down a tad!

Great flavours though, very different to anything I've had before, but we really enjoyed this dish and can only imagine how nice it would be if it had still wobbled...definitely a custard texture instead of the bitty texture ours had. It hasn't put us off, I'm going to do this again and master that wobble!
