Grilled Lime Curry Chicken with Coconut Rice

July 21, 2013 6 Comments | Disclosure

This is a great grilled chicken recipe to have in your arsenal. Quick and easy to throw together (as long as you have some time to let it marinate). It is flavorful, and for many, a bit different from the usual. Mix things up a bit! The extra bonus is that making the coconut rice helps use up the rest of the canned coconut milk. I definitely recommend this one; we all loved it!

Grilled Lime Curry Chicken with Coconut Rice

Ingredients

    Chicken and Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk, light or regular
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • Fresh limes, cut into wedges
  • Coconut Rice:
  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk, light or regular
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, lime zest, lime juice, cumin, coriander, soy sauce, salt, sugar, curry powder, coconut milk, and cayenne pepper. Place the chicken in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, up to 8 hours.
  2. For the coconut rice, bring the rice, coconut milk, water and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15-16 minutes until the liquid is mostly evaporated. Remove from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes before fluffing with a fork and serving.
  3. Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for 6-7 minutes per side (actual time will depend on the thickness of the chicken). While the chicken is cooking, pour the marinade into a small or medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a rolling boil and boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Place the grilled chicken on a serving platter or plate. Drizzle with sauce (reserve the remaining sauce to serve separately) and sprinkle fresh cilantro over the top. Serve with lime wedges and additional sauce.

Recipe from MelsKitchenCafe. I changed the name of the recipe because it tasted a lot more like curry than coconut to me!

    Was at a loss as to what to cook for dinner tonight and my search for answers led me to your page. Made it exactly according to recipe, tasted absolutely gorgeous, only thing I would change is to make a bit more of the marinade so as to have more sauce. So nice, cook it people!!
