I am on the constant search for great grilling recipes! Sometimes, I just throw some things together for a marinade and it turns out fantastic. I saw a recipe involving coconut milk and soy sauce and decided to jazz it up a little. The coconut milk doesn’t create too strong of a coconut flavor, so don’t let it steer you away if you aren’t a fan. It really adds juiciness to the chicken and is the perfect combination of flavors.
The marinade uses half of a can of light coconut milk. I then made jasmine rice in the coconut milk and water- and it added a light sweet coconutty flavor. I highly suggest serving it with rice cooked in the unused coconut milk!
