Thai Coconut Chicken (With Homemade Coconut Milk)
25 mins (prep 10, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
4 servings
I made this tonight to accompany Thai Coconut Rice. and wow was it yummy! It is from the January 2011 issue of Cooking Light. and I am posting with a few minor tweaks. I only had one can of coconut milk tonight, and as I looked at the two recipes I realized I needed double that. A little internet sleuthing brought me to a way of making coconut milk at home (without buying a whole coconut!) so I thought I would post it here in case others ever need that emergency substitution. PLEASE NOTE: Cook time here does not include marinating time of 2 hours.
