Coconut Milk Grilled Chicken

This chicken was everything I dreamed it would be! It was flavourful and moist, and it was so easy to prepare. I saw a similar recipe on Whole Foods Market recipes , and adjusted it slightly.

I marinated eight large chicken breasts, basted them throughout the grilling process, and still had quite a bit leftover, so this recipe makes enough marinade for ten to twelve chicken breasts.

Makes 8 chicken breasts


2.0kg boneless skinless chicken breasts
400mL can coconut milk
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp fresh ginger, finely minced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
Black pepper, to taste


Place raw chicken breasts in a large bowl. Mix all other ingredients together and pour over top of the chicken to fully coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 to 8 hours.

Grill chicken breasts, basting with excess marinade throughout.
