I love coconut flavour literally I can use coconut milk and cream in every recipe. Thai coconut chicken is a must try recipeRamsha Baig
In case you love Thai food, this Thai Coconut chicken is for you! The chicken is marinated in coconut milk loaded with Thai flavours which adds flavour and richness to the chicken. You can also try plenty of Thai cuisine recipes such as Pad Thai, Thai Fried Rice, Thai Curries
Served with a Peanut Coconut Sauce to really pressure home the coconut flavour, this Thai chicken is first rate for the BBQ, stovetop or roasting. Serve this with a facet of jasmine rice or Thai Fried Rice!
Thai Coconut Chicken
In case you’re new to coconut marinades, you’re going to simply love this Coconut chicken recipe! Coconut milk is a terrific marinade – it’s a flavour service, infusing the chicken with all the tasty flavours you’ve mixed into the marinade.
But now not best that, it also provides richness into the chicken, which most marinades do not do. Coconut milk has a fair quantity of fats in it which infuses into the chicken.
So this Thai chicken isn’t best injected with tremendous Thai flavours, it’s tenderised and infused with what I describe as “butteriness” from the coconut milk. It’s surely divine!
Thai Coconut Chicken Marinade
At the same time as this Thai Coconut chicken might not be strictly proper Thai, the marinade is loaded with true Thai ingredients which might be found in classic Thai recipes, like selfmade Thai crimson Curry and Thai inexperienced Curry Pastes.
Garlic and ginger
Lemongrass (fresh or convenience paste)
Spices: coriander, turmeric, curry
It also just dawned on me that the ingredients in the Thai coconut marinade is like a mash up among this excellent Southern Thai Tumeric chicken and Gai Yang, the famous Thai grilled chicken which is a avenue food favourite.
Coconut Peanut Sauce for Coconut Chicken
The coconut flavour from coconut marinades is actually quite subtle, like in this western style Coconut Marinated Chicken
So what I like to do is serve it with a Coconut Peanut Sauce, just to really drive home the coconut flavour. It’s simple to make but tastes thoroughly authentic Thai, made with just a handful of ingredients:
- Coconut milk
- Peanut butter
- Hoisin Sauce
- lime juice
- Chilli paste
Also, it’s quite a neat way to use up a whole can of coconut milk in this recipe – because despite good intentions, I never seem to use up leftover coconut milk!
Right here are some guidelines for matters to serve at the facet to finish your Thai dinner menu:
Plain steamed jasmine rice, a fluffy coconut rice (accept as true with me, it’s now not coconut overload!) or make a fresh lime rice the usage of this Lemon Rice recipe (switch lime for lemon);
A aspect of Thai Fried Rice (minus the chicken, maybe add a few chopped veg);
leafy veggies or a garden salad tossed with the dressing on this Thai chicken Salad or Thai red meat Salad; or
Serve with simple slices of tomato and cucumber (pictured) -this is a very not unusual manner vegetables are added to a meal in Thailand.
