  1. Fire up the barbecue or heat a griddle pan to high. Tip chicken, curry paste and coconut milk into a bowl, then mix well until the chicken is evenly coated.

I agree with the comments above, it does take longer to cook the chicken through. A really tasty recipe though, especially when served with rice and fresh mint leaves and lime as shown in the photo!

Lovely flavour - went down well with all the family. Don't usually use coconut milk and thought a tin for £1.80 was a little pricey for 2 tablespoons, so I bought creamed coconut for 60p and was able to cut off a small portion and blend with water. I now have the rest of the creamed coconut to use as and when required.

I marinated it over night and it was very flavoursome. I also just grilled it and the chicken was so tender and moist. It was slightly on the spicy side for me, so maybe thai green curry paste would work better if you prefer milder flavours.

So easy and so nice! the chicken stayed really soft, even after it cooled down. I will definitely make this again!

These were absolutely delicious. I used low fat coconut milk and they were so moist and tender and had a lovely flavour from the curry paste. I cooked them in a george foreman grill and they were done in 8 minutes, definitely a keeper!

This was delicious, I served it on a siziling hot plate with a few extra red onions and it looked and tastd great! I agree with anna though it needed cooking for much longer around 20 mins.

i prepared the marinade earlier in the day and left the chicken in it for about 5 hours in the fridge, really tasty.

Absolutely great menu, BUT, in my opinion needs cooking for much, much longer. We left it in the grill for about 12 minutes and the chicken was still pink inside. Had to cook it for about 18 minutes in total in the end. Apart from that, fabulous. Will make again.
