    Thai Coconut Chicken is low in fat and makes for an amazing dinner recipe. Thai foods use coconut milk in plenty as an alternative to dairy products. Coconuts have a unique flavor and aroma that your kitchen will smell amazing when you are cooking this dish. Coconut milk brings a sophistication and an unparalleled taste to this chicken dish.

    Health Benefits

    • Coconut is considered a complete food since it is a powerhouse of vitamins, calories, and minerals. It is said that a single fruit can provide you with the recommended quantities of all essential nutrients!
    • Lauric acid found in coconuts helps reduce bad cholesterol levels in the body and ensures that the arteries stay healthy.
    • Coconut water is not only refreshing but also packs in enzymes, minerals, and electrolytes. It helps to improve digestion and boosts metabolism as well.

    How to make Thai Coconut Chicken

    • Add rice and water in a 2 quart saucepan. Cover it and heat over a high flame. Bring it to boil and then lower the heat, simmering for about 20 minutes.
    • Toss the chicken with curry powder in a bowl to coat it completely.
    • Cook the chicken in a nonstick skillet which has been coated with cooking spray. Stir occasionally over medium-high heat for about 4 minutes. Add the asparagus, carrots, snow peas, and green onions. Cook for 3 more minutes.
    • Add the coconut milk and cook until the chicken is cooked and the sauce is hot. Serve the dish over hot cooked rice.
    • Serve the delicacy with some peanut coconut sauce. The sauce will be a perfect complement to the chicken making the meal complete and balanced.

      Trivia

      Did you know coconut trees can be either dwarf or tall? Make no mistake, though: even the dwarf trees can rise up to 60 feet. The tall ones, you ask? Well, they go over 98 feet!
