Β Recently I had to answer the question “What is your favorite food?” I have to be honest, that is THE hardest question for me to answer. I think you would have better luck asking me what foods I don’t like……

KETCHUP. Weird, I know. The smell, the bright red color. It’s just too much for me.

MUSHROOMS. It’s a texture thing for me.

STEAK/RED. Ugh! The red, mooing cow, and the fat pockets. No thank you.

EGGNOG. Just no. I can’t do it. It’s too thick.

That’s it. Just 4 things. I’m not that picky πŸ™‚ I will say that it’s much easier to answer my favorite flavor combos. Like this one!Β One of my favorite combos is curry-coconut milk- cilantro-lime. It provides SO much flavor with so few & simple ingredients.

Mix up a marinade, throw some chicken in it and let it soak up all the flavor in the fridge overnight. Throw it on the grill and you’re done! So easy, right?!

I usually serve this with some coconut rice. Use jasmine rice or basmati rice and replace the water called for on package directions with coconut milk. It’s really good and compliments the chicken perfectly. Or this cilantro lime rice is really good too.

If you want to, set aside 1/2 cup or so of the marinade (before adding the raw chicken!) and either use it as a sauce to drizzle over the rice & chicken, or use it to brush on the chicken while it’s grilling. I have only done this once and while it’s good I don’t think it’s necessary because the chicken is already so moist and flavorful that you really don’t need the extra sauce drizzle.

Try it both ways and see what you prefer. I always just marinate the chicken in all of the marinade, throw it on the grill and that’s it.
