I have a great passion for cooking and the kitchen is certainly my happy place. If it’s either baking, cooking, for myself or loved ones.
To eat good is important for me. After all the chicken and vegetables I’ve consumed the last few years, I’ve figured out few tricks how to make my meals like a every day luxury.
And lucky for you I am going to share one of them with you today.
We all have had dry boring chicken. Ive got the best trick how to get your chicken delicious and juicy! And its easy and cheap. Simply oven bake your chicken in coconut milk. Man I’m telling you the chicken will be the most juicy chicken you’ve ever tasted. And prefect for us who prep chicken in larger quantities.
The only thing you need is coconut milk, salt, pepper and herbs or spices. I would recommend to ass quite a lot of herbs(I used thyme here) and spices to get a nice flavour on your chicken. As the coconut milk doesn’t really add too much flavour, its more for the juicyness. Bake it in the oven for about 40-45 min on 200 degrees. I would also recommend that the coconut milk should cover all the chicken. Or the bits that stick out will get a bit dry, unless you turn them around half way through cooking time.
Another thing that is OUT OF THIS WORLD, is having a parsnip purée as a side dish. Not only is this a great substitute for mashed potatoes(or potatoes in general if you want a low carb option), but it taste a hell of a lot better than mashed potatoes if you ask me. Its high in fiber and a decent amount of plant protein as well! This is truly something you want on your dinner plate. And the best part, it’s so easy to make and very cost-effective!
2 1/2-3 Parsnips
1 generous tsp butter
ca 30 ml cream or milk(if using milk boil it before and set a side)
Salt and Pepper
Garlic is optional
Peel and cut up the parsnips into small pieces, boil them for about 5-7 min in salty water until tender. Add the parsnips, butter and milk/cream in a food processor and blend until you get a very smooth and creamy consistency. This is so easy.
