Tangy Thai Chicken

Tangy Thai Chicken

Juicy chicken breasts marinated, then basted with a tangy Thai flavored sauce made with coconut milk, lime juice and a touch of hot sauce.


•1 cup coconut milk
•1 cup fresh lime juice
•1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
•2 Tablespoons fish sauce
•3 green onions, finely minced
•2 cloves garlic, finely minced
•2 teaspoons fresh ginger, finely minced
•1 Tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
•1 Tablespoon fresh cilantro leaves, finely minced
•8 chicken breasts
•Salt and freshly ground pepper
•Lime slices, for garnish
•Green onions, for garnish

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine coconut milk, lime juice, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, green onions, garlic, ginger, hot sauce, and cilantro in a small mixing bowl and mix well to combine. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken in a large zip top plastic bag and pour 1/2 of marinade over chicken. Seal bag and let marinate for 30 minutes. Add remaining marinade to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to glaze consistency. Place about 1/4 cup of glaze in a separate bowl and reserve. Remove chicken from marinade and brush with glaze. Place chicken, skin side down, on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Turn chicken over and generously brush with glaze. Bake for 10-15 more minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Once chicken has cooled enough to handle, place two breasts on each of 4 plates and drizzle with reserved glaze. Garnish with lime slices and green onions.
