Two types of coconut milk...what to do?

I have some vanilla flavored coconut milk (1/2 gallon) and a half of a can of coconut milk (I used the other 1/2 to make lime/coconut chicken). This is the first I have bought of either. What are your favorite recipes w/ either or both?
TIA

The 1/2 gallon of coconut milk is meant for drinking like milk. The canned is to be used in recipes. I recently made some chicken with coconut sauce and used it in chicken wraps. My kids loved it and asked for more.http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chicken...-2/detail.aspx

My review is first on the list. I forgot I did use boneless chicken thighs from Aldis instead of chicken breasts as I thought cooking the breasts for the time indicated would make them dry despite the sauce.

Great! I can make small batches since DH travels for work and is often away and the kids dont always eat alot. I made a lime coconut chicken and didnt care for the lime part so much. I tried drinking some of the 1/2 gallon and didnt care for it so will make smoothies w/ it or feed it to the kiddos. I added that recipe to my recipes on allrecipes, thank you! I have been on the hunt for a good curry recipe so I will keep an eye out thank you!
