Thai Grilled Chicken

This recipe is absolutely delicious! The chicken is super tender because it‘s a coconut based marinade and naturally tenderises the chicken. I alternate between red curry for a mild dish and green curry for chicken with a spicy kick! I always buy extra chicken and double the marinade quantity to freeze part of it in a freezer bag. As it defrosts, it’s already marinating. Great for busy weeks!

Here’s the recipe:-

Thai Grilled Chicken Recipe


4-6 chicken thighs
1 can 400ml coconut milk (don’t use coconut cream, it’s too thick for this)
4 tbs red or green store bought Thai curry paste
1 tbs lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
2 tbs chopped coriander leaves

  1. In a bowl, combine the coconut milk, curry paste, lime juice and coriander.
  2. Add chicken thighs to a dish and pour the marinate over them. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Grill the chicken on the BBQ over medium heat for 45-50 mins or until the chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately with stir fried greens and steamed rice.
