Ingredients
  • 8 Chicken thighs - (Chicken thighs are the best as they keep moist but you could also try with chicken breasts.)
  • Marinade
  • 1 cup of coconut cream
  • ¼ cup of soy sauce - gluten free
  • ½ teaspoon of ground tumeric
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • ½ teaspoon of chilli - or to your liking
  • 1 lime - the juice and the zest
  • 1 teaspoon of brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Using an electric blender, add in the coconut cream, soy sauce, turmeric, chilli, garlic, ginger, sugar, the zest and juice of the lime and blend.
  2. In a tray, lay down the chicken thighs and pour over the marinade.
  3. Turn the chicken so that all the chicken is covered and then cover the tray with plastic film and put it in the fridge overnight or a least for 4 hours.
  4. Using a grill plate, brush with oil and place the chicken on the grill and cook on both sides.
  5. TIP - I pour the extra marinade into a frypan and bring it to a simmer.
  6. As I cook the chicken in batches, I place the chicken thighs in the frypan first, while I grill a batch. This makes sure the chicken stays moist and then you have some marinade to pour over the chicken and rice. ... Just yum!!
