Coconut Chicken

August 16, 2008

This is a tasty combination of peanut, coconut milk and lime. Some kick of chili too if you like it hot 🙂

I know, this is not healthy food with the fat amount in it… but i think everyone agree that “junk food” is yummy 😀 😀 😀

2/3 cup hot chicken boullion (you can use water instead but you’ll need extra salt and pepper)
1/3 cup coconut cream
1 tbsp sunflower oil (or any other vegetable oil)
8 chicken fillet, cut into strips
1 small red chili, thinly sliced (omit this if you don’t like it hot)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
2 cloves minced garlic (or more as your prefer)
2 cm fresh ginger,minced
4 tbsp peanut butter (you can use smooth or crunchy one as you prefer)
finely grated rind and juice of 1 lime

Pour the chicken boullion into a bowl, mix with coconut cream.

Heat up the work with some oil, stir in the minced garlic and ginger, cook until fragrant.
Add the chicken pieces, cook until they turn color to opaque and slightly brown.

Add the rest of the ingredients, adjust the taste, let it simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the mixture sticking to the bottom of the wok.

Serve it warm with boiled rice (jasmin rice is a perfect match) 🙂
