Macau-Style Baked Portuguese Chicken Rice

Macau-Style Baked Portuguese Chicken Rice. Delicious comforting chicken baked under melting cheese over rice with a coconut curry sauce. The sauce has a mild curry taste and a lovely coconut scent. When that sauce is baked over the tender chicken thighs with cheese and rice it is pure heaven in your mouth.
