If you have been following my blog for awhile, you might have seen a few marinated chicken recipes on here because I just LOVE that. Simplicity at its finest, tasty and crowd pleasing. This time I am twisting it a bit with coconut milk and lime for instant freshness.
You can marinate the chicken for an hour but I really recommend doing it overnight so it has a chance to get all those delicious flavors.
Coconut and lime baked chicken :
- 6 chicken drumsticks
- 150ml coconut milk
- 1 lime
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander
Mix together coconut milk, lime juice, sugar, coriander and salt in a shallow plate.
Put the chicken in the plate, coat it well with the marinade and let it sit in there for at least an hour (overnight is optimal).
Preheat the oven at 180°C/350°F.
Place the chicken pieces in a baking dish and drizzle it with the marinade.
Bake for 30-45 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken, flip it on the other side half way through cooking time.
