Here’s an interesting fun fact about this chicken alfredo recipe you’re about to get…
I opened the can of coconut milk and noticed it was fairly solidified, with coconut cream forming around the top and the coconut water below in the bottom of the can. This is common and is typically a sign of good quality coconut milk.
Not paying much attention to it, I proceeded to tip the can to pour the coconut milk into my Bullet Blender so that I could make the Alfredo sauce for the recipe. I should mention, the Bullet Blender I was using was small, only the size of a large glass, just big enough to fit an entire can of coconut milk.
Since the top was solid with coconut cream, I had to squeeze the can a little bit in an attempt to force the cream to break and let the coconut water below flow free into the blender. What I didn’t anticipate was for the cream to bust open suddenly, tip the Bullet Blender over and for the entire can of coconut milk to squirt all over my cupboards, dump all over the counter and eventually drip onto the floor. An entire can of coconut milk all over my cupboards, counter and floor.
If you’re wondering, cleaning up an entire can of coconut milk is not a pleasant experience.
