Weekend dinner: Thai coconut chicken
Chicken doesn't have to be boring. Show it a little love with a flavorful marinade and chicken can be downright amazing. Why not dress up your chicken with bright, fresh lime and lemongrass, a little sesame oil and coconut milk, a touch of brown sugar and a hint of heat from some fresh Thai chiles? A Thai coconut marinade is simple, and comes together in minutes. The trick is to give the chicken enough time to properly marinate, so the flavor really soaks in -- this may not be dinner tonight, but it's a perfect dish for this weekend. Get the chicken marinating the night before, or first thing in the morning. When dinnertime rolls around, throw the chicken on the grill -- or bake it in the oven -- and serve it alongside a quick salad and dinner is done.
