How to Make Yummy spicy coconut chicken


  1. Preheat the oven 20 minutes before chicken needs to go in.
  2. Wash well the chicken (bone on/de-bone if you wish depending on the meat you have chosen to cook or you can leave both skin and bone on ( I normally remove the skin)- it is entirely up to you. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on it and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix the coconut milk with all the other ingredients (ginger, pepper, salt, turmeric powder, chilli flakes, lemon/lime juice and the finely chopped spring onions - you can leave few for decorating.
  4. Mix the chicken with the coconut milk marinade, make sure it is all nicely coated, cover with clingfilm and put in the fridge for 1-2 hours (not an issue if you do not have the time to allow it to marinade- it will be as tasty and yummy).
  5. Place in an oven tray that should not be larger than fitting all the chicken in nicely, cover with a lid or foil and put in a preheated oven at 190-200ºC. (370-390F) Cook for a good 40-45 minutes. Half way through cooking take the tray/dish out of the oven, remove the foil, turn each piece of chicken and place (uncovered) back in the oven. Cook for a further 20-25 minutes all depending on the meat chunks size.
