Coconut Chicken

A spicy chicken preparation always makes our dinner perfect, that too in chilled cold weather. While making the dinner I always wanted to give him a new essence so that he feels good. Because dinner is the only meal which he eats properly. Breakfast time he is so busy so most of the days he takes only one piece of toast, and in lunch almost every day busy with meetings. That’s why I want him to have the dinner properly.

I already tried many chicken dishes and looking for something new. I had half coconut in fridge and I wanted to finish it so tried to make something with coconut .And prepared this yummy COCONUT CHICKEN. The recipe is really easy, but believe me this one is really too good with the smell of coconut.

Preparation time: 15 mints.
