Coconut Curry Roasted Chicken


Sometimes in my family, we try to shake things up a bit with new recipes for the big holiday meals. Last Thanksgiving we went with an assortment of Caribbean favorites. It was well received and everyone was happy.

This recipe for a aromatic Coconut Curry Roasted Chicken is one that's sure to please and offer a delicious alternative to the traditional faire. It's also pretty simple to make using my shortcut products but you can also make your own curry paste as I will also share the recipe for that too.

I hope you get a chance to try this recipe and wish you and your loved ones a yummy and happy Thankful Thursday.


Ingredients:

1 3-4 lb whole chicken cleaned and sectioned

1/4 cup TQM Green Marinade (Epis)

1 tbsp Island Vibez Curry Powder

1/4 cup Coconut Milk

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp vegetable oil


Alternative Green Marinade:

In your food processor, combine 1 tbsp thyme, 2 tbsp parsley, 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger, 1/2 jalapeno, 1/4 cup celery, 1 tsp basil, 1 small onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tbsp vegetable oil.

You can substitute TQM Island Vibez Curry Powder with an available brand.


The Sauce:

1/4 cup Coconut Milk
