Cooking with coconut

I went to the grocery store last week and saw it. The coconut milk. It is one of those things I always look at and think about cooking with, but never buy. I finally decided to buy it and cook with it!

It’s no secret in my house that I adore curry. Pretty much no one else does. Fine, more for me ;). I decided to make coconut -curried chicken and vegetables for dinner.

I popped open a can of coconut milk and got to work. First, I marinated the chicken for an hour with olive oil, curry, lime juice, garlic powder, and coconut milk. After marinating, I plopped the chicken in a hot skillet and cooked it in more coconut milk.

I cooked the chicken for 6 minutes on both sides.

Then I put peas, onions, and green peppers into the pan to saute with with…more coconut milk lolz.

The chicken came out nicely and the veggies were creamy.


I will have the recipe for this and stuffed cabbage (from my last post) up shortly.

Other than some easy peasy cooking, my life has been filled with relaxing with animals.

My baby girl Lola was all curled up on the couch^

Jimmy’s dog, Tobi, kept my lap warm.

Just for giggles, Jimmy and I went to a pet store recently to browse around. We saw a cage full of cute pups.


Okay, that is all I have for today.

After church Jimmy and I are going out to eat and bowling with friends. Yay 🙂


Have you ever cooked with coconut milk? (any recipe recommendations?!)

What are you up to today?


  1. Adore coconut milk, in both savory and sweet dishes. Have you ever tried sticky rice with coconut milk? If they have it on the dessert menu at a Thai restaurant, GET IT.

  2. Never cooked with coconut milk or tasted curry so I’m not much of a help, but I do have to say that this dish looks fabulous! 😀

  3. I’m not the most experienced with coconut milk recipes, however I have made ice cream with it, which turned out AWESOME! I also love just opening a can of full fat coconut milk and sticking it in the fridge. It kind of turns out like cool whip with a coconutty taste! I’m with you on the love of curry. My Dad and I are the only fans in my fam!
