Method

1. Marinate the chicken pieces with the above marinade for at least 1-2 hrs.

2. Cook the marinated chicken in a heavy wide pan with the coconut milk. No need to add water since water will ooze out from the chicken. Stir in between. Once the chicken is cooked, add 1- 2 tbsp coconut oil and sauté the pieces in medium heat until browned.
