Grilled Coconut Chicken with Creamy Spinach Sauce & Oven Roasted Breadfruit

The earthy flavors of roasted slices of breadfruit topped with creamy coconut milk, infused with bold spices, the delicate flavors of fresh spinach and juicy pieces of chicken breast. I absolutely love it when a recipe is simple but tastes luxurious. Inspired by Thai style chicken that I put my very own twist on, it of course was wonderful. Here's the recipe I hope you guys enjoy it.


1 1/2 lbs Chicken Thighs (de-boned washed and cleaned)

1 med Breadfruit

4 tbsp Olive Oil

4 cups Baby Spinach

1 can Coconut Milk (400 ml)

2 tbsp Brown Sugar

4 cloves Garlic crushed then chopped fine

1 tsp fresh Parsley chopped

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black pepper

1/2 tsp Turmeric

1/2 tsp Chili Flakes

1/4 tsp Cumin


●Preheat oven to 375°

●Quarter and peel your breadfruit before slicing.

●Wash and dry slices then sprinkle with salt.

●Grease a large tray with a generous amount of olive oil.

●Place breadfruit on tray and bake for 15 mins be sure to flip all the slices when they halfway cooked and ensure they are soft you can tell this when they can be easily pierced with a fork.

●Add your can of coconut milk to a bowl and add cumin, black pepper, salt, turmeric, garlic, parsley, chili flakes and brown sugar. Mix well till sugar has dissolved.

●Lay chicken thighs in a dish and add coconut milk marinade. Let marinade in fridge for 3 hours- overnight.

●Grease your grill or skillet well and then heat on high heat.

●Place thighs on grill and cook for approximately 8 mins on either side. Ensuring chicken is golden and has grill marks.

●Remove from grill and add remaining marinade to saucepan.

●Bring sauce to a simmer and add spinach.

●Once spinach has cookes down, add grilled chicken to sauce and simmer on low heat for a further 5 mins.

●Remove from heat immediately and serve over roasted breadfruit.

Always a pleasure having food therapy sessions with you guys. I hope to see you soon.❤
