Grilled Coconut Lime Chicken Curry


This is one of those recipes that you're going to want to make anytime someone comes over and will have it on repeat for the rest of the summer!  It's super easy to make and packed with flavor.  The best part of this recipe is that you can leave it to marinade overnight or prepare it just 30 minutes in advance!

My kids are particularly fond of this recipe.  The coconut milk and lime make the chicken extra tender and juicy.  The sauce has the perfect balance of sweet and spicy with the curry powder.  You can add fresh chilies or more curry powder if you like it spicy.  My kids are fond of the mild and sweet spice and that's how we tend to make it.

This recipe is a family favorite that can be grilled outside or done in a grill pan on the stovetop.  If you're in need of a new grill pan, I highly recommend the Pampered Chef Double Burner Grill Pan and Cast Iron Press.  I use it all the time in my house.  It's an investment, but it has a lifetime warranty.  It's also one pan that will take you through breakfast, lunch, and dinner!  If you'd like to get one for free or half-price, let me know! I can help you out by hosting a Virtual Pampered Chef Party!
