Coconut Chicken

A yummy sticky coconut chicken that pairs wonderfully with rice.



  1. Marinade chicken in coconut milk, ginger, pepper, and 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes at least one hour (longer is better).
  2. Remove chicken from marinade and grill on BBQ.
  3. While chicken is grilling, bring vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until mixture is reduced and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Glaze both sides of the chicken the last few minutes of grilling and serve over rice.
  5. You can use the leftover coconut milk as part of the liquid required to make your rice for a nice mildly sweetened flavor.
  6. Note: based on recipe from Recipezaar.

super yammy (!!) but 1/2 cup sugar in a low carb recipe is a bit much and that results also too high carbs for Induction Phase. Also Rice does not fit for the Atkins diet...
