Roast Chicken in Coconut Milk Ingredients

  • 2 1-kilo Chicken each cut into 8 pieces
  • 2 cups coconut milk (gata)
  • 4 tablespoons Calamansi Juice
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce (patis)
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ginger grated
  • 1/4 Cup cilantro (wansoy) chopped
  • chili flakes to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Salt
  • vegetable oil for brushing


  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat oven to 420°F. Brush baking sheet with oil. Drain marinade from chicken then arrange chicken on prepared baking sheet. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Alternatively, you can grill the chicken: preheat charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with oil to prevent chicken from sticking. Arrange chicken on the grill, skin side down, 1 inch apart. Grill each side for 8 to 10 minutes. Check for doneness by piercing the thickest part of each piece; they’re cooked when the juices run clear.
