Coconut Butter Chicken Roast

Coconut Butter Chicken Roast

Chicken is marinated & cooked with the coconut and butter till the pieces are juicy, flavorful & roasted outside. It is simple, spicy and succulent. This is such an easy dish, yet so delicious and flavorful.

I usually add coconut to chicken finally and cook in many of my chicken curry recipes. But this one I cooked the chicken in butter and coconut. When you wanted to make a dry side dish with chicken, you might be guilty to make chicken 65 always which is fried. So, this one taste like it is been fried but it is not. I made this with ghee rice and fish curry.
