Chicken with Coconut and Spring Onions

    2 hours 20 min

    Sometimes I add fresh or dried chillies to the marinade to spice it up a little. I serve it warm, with shredded lettuce in a tortilla wrap.

    Something else. This is the easiest and best recipe. I've now made it several ways and the chicken is perfect each and every time. For an starter, I've skewered the chicken pieces between mushrooms.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Great recipe! I used boneless chicken breasts, added powdered ginger and crushed chillies to the marinade. Let it marinate about 4 hours. I also omitted the spring onions since I'm not a big fan of them. I cooked the marinade down and topped the chicken with it at the end.  -  18 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. Easy, unique and tasty! I highly recommend using low-salt soy, as regular soy tends to be WAY too salty. I add a bit of ginger (about a tablespoon, chopped) for added flavour.  -  18 Jul 2008
