   * Either use canned coconut milk or use 2-1/4 pounds of grated coconut
   (fresh) with 7 cups of hot water to make the required amount of coconut
   milk. Debone the chicken, and cut up the meat into bite size pieces. Cut up
   the bones into chunks. Simmer the chicken bone in coconut milk over low to
   medium heat for approximately 1/2 hour. Remove the bones and add the cut up
   chicken meat and sliced galanga. Place the lid back on the pot and continue
   to simmer over low heat for another 20 minutes. Remove from heat and season
   to tastes with fish sauce, lime juice, and sugar. Serve with chopped
   cilantro and crushed hot peppers sprinkled on top.
