Thai Coconut Lime Chicken

Tuesday, April 25, 2017



Oh my goodness, this is a great, quick chicken recipe for warmer nights when you can start up the grill and have  a great tasting dinner in about 30 minutes. The flavors of the coconut, lime, ginger and cilantro are such a great combination. If you are like me and like extra sauce for the chicken and to spoon over the rice, make a second batch of the marinade. I warm it in a saucepan and pour it over chicken and a side of rice. So, so good. 
I usually let the chicken marinate for a few hours, but I think that even half an hour/45 minutes would work.

DIRECTIONS 

1. If your chicken breasts are thick, cut them in half for quicker cooking time. 
2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all marinade ingredients.
