- Taste and adjust salt.

The corn was added with the chicken as it was already soft. If you want to be on the safe side, you can boil the corn for a few minutes prior to adding to the chicken.
This is one of those dishes that you can add as much coconut milk as you like. It’s a very rich dish with the more coconut milk added.
