To kick off the grilling season, as a part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® and Smart and Final, I made this Ginger-Lime Grilled Chicken with Coconut using First Street Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts with rib meat. #ChooseSmart
The flavors of this Ginger-Lime Grilled Chicken with Coconut scream summertime. Not to mention the beautiful aromas you will enjoy while preparing and cooking this dish - it's like being away on a tropical vacation.
Ginger-Lime Grilled Chicken with Coconut
1 cup shredded coconut, sweetened
½ oz fresh ginger, chopped
zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ tablespoon chopped garlic
½ teaspoon red chili flakes
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup olive oil
3lbs First Street Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, with rib meat
First, finely chop the shredded coconut. I used my food processor and it made the job a breeze!
Rest assure that this chicken will not be sweet - we will be adding a little heat with some chopped garlic and chili flakes.
Combine ½ cup coconut, ginger, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, chili flakes, soy sauce and olive oil in food processor and process until fully combined.
Marinade chicken breasts in Ginger-Lime & Coconut sauce for 4 hours. I have found that using a gallon size freezer bag works great for this. Then, grill the chicken over medium-high heat - about 7 minutes on each side or until clear juices run when pierced with a knife. Sprinkle with remaining coconut and cover grill for a minute to let coconut set on chicken. Remove from grill and serve with lime wedges for squeezing.
I am in love with this recipe for chicken and am so happy it found it's way into my life. I served the Ginger-Lime Grilled Chicken with Coconut with green peas and cilantro rice, which resulted in no leftovers. Score!
Starting on May 22nd, First Street Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts with rib meat will be on sale at Smart & Final for $1.97 a pound.
