Directions

  1. In a blender or large food processor, combine the garlic, serrano peppers, ginger, cilantro, lime zest, soy sauce, sugar and coconut milk. Process until smooth.
  2. Place the chicken into a large resealable bag, and pour the liquid from the blender in with it. Seal, and refrigerate for about 1 hour, turning once after 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler. Place the chicken onto a broiling pan, and pour the marinade into a saucepan.
  4. Broil the chicken for about 10 minutes on each side, until browned and the juices run clear. While the chicken is cooking, bring the marinade to a boil. Simmer over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then remove from the heat.
  5. Place chicken onto a serving plate, and pour the sauce over it to serve.

We loved this! It was as good as one of our favorite dishes at a Thai restaurant. No changes, except I used lime juice (instead of zest) and I baked it instead of broiled (30 minutes at 350) - delicious!!!

Yummy! I could almost drink this marinade. I used only one serrano chile because of my husband and 2 year old. It was still quite spicy, but all three of us loved it. I am definitely going to try the marinade on shrimp and maybe tofu.

Yum! This was good, but next time, I'll add more lime or peppers (or something) to give it more of a kick.
