coconut-lime grilled chicken

June 10, 2010


Yessssssss. It’s June. It’s SUMMER in two weeks!! And the grill is out in full force. Hell yes, it is. Do you love grilling, or are you more of an indoors kind of person? I am all about the outdoor eating extravaganza (picnics, grilling, street food) so long as there is appropriate preparation. Do we have napkins? Condiments? Appropriate utensils? Margaritas? Ok, then we’re good to go.

If you’re a grill person then this is for you. If you’re not, well, no doubt I’ll be baking some more blondies or some such sweetness soon. Just for you.

If you want something simple but a bit different to throw on the grill this week, try this.


Marinate some chicken drumsticks for several hours in:

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • juice of 2 limes
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

and then grill ’em up! Be sure to get that chicken skin nice and crunchy. The coconut flavour was really prominent in these so some rice and beans with a kick are the perfect accompaniment:


I’d love to know your favourite grill marinades – please feel free to leave a comment!

And THANK YOU for your smoothie suggestions – I’ve been having a whale of a time with the new blender! Peanut butter and banana? Yup. Mixed berry and yoghurt? Yep. Cherry Choco Bomb? I need to find me some frozen cherries! Summer has arrived, at least in my world.

Heck yah! Love grilling. This sounds like a great marinade. We've been doing a lot of burgers, veggies and even grilled cheese on the grill. Its been awesome

Yummy…lime and coconut and chicken! That sounds divine.

I can't get frozen cherries here in Canada…I have looked and looked, everywhere! Big bummer! I should just use pom juice :)

Love the sounds of this!
I'm a huge grilling fan! (Well, the eating part, not the doing part! :))

If you ever come across Korean Bulgogi sauce, you definitely need to grab it. It's amazing as a marinade.

I've never marinated in coconut milk – this sounds delicious!
