Thai Coconut Chicken Recipe

This Thai coconut chicken recipe is very quick and easy to make. It is a fantastic dinner recipe for those that are time poor but still wanting to enjoy a meal that’s full of flavour. This recipe is perfect for all experience levels – from a kitchen wizz to those that are not very skilled in the kitchen or even just learning to cook. It is straightforward with very easy instructions and requires minimal effort.


I also realise that everyone is trying to save money where they can and it is often saved when purchasing groceries. My coconut chicken recipe is budget friendly and requires only 6 ingredients (you could even use less than that if you really wanted). Over the many years I have spent in the hospitality industry  as a chef I have learnt how to create meals that require the minimal effort, are cost effective and are full of flavour. I want to share some of these recipes with you, so you too can enjoy eating delicious restaurant quality foods at home, while sticking to your budget.

    I think I am going to have to try this one! Not sure if I have any coconut milk in the cupboard, but I could make some in the thermomix I guess.

    Thanks for linking up Kell!

    Love this – will add that to our menu plan (which desperately needs a bit of a shake up, and I just noticed that chicken is cheaper than beef these days!)…

      Yes chicken is cheaper these days, but when there are delicious recipes like this one who cares if you have chicken a lot ;p Let me know what you think of the recipe.

    This looks so straightforward, have never tried the Thai Gourmet Garden, never sure how to use it, must bookmark this page. Hello via Team Friday!!

      It is very straight forward and easy to make, yet tastes and looks like restaurant quality. The thai gourmet garden can be used in a lot of different ways. You can spead it over fish and then wrap in foil and bake, in chicken like this meal, mixed with soy sce, etc. Very versatile. Thanks for commenting.

    Seana – I usually put the Thai one in a stirfry with a bit of soy, some sugar and a splash of sesame oil, it’s delish!
