One Pot Meal, Coconut Lime Chicken

Servings: 8 -10 servings
Author: Shelly


  • 5 pound Whole Chicken
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Coriander
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Basil
  • Zest of 2 Limes
  • 6 Garlic Cloves
  • 3 cups of Coconut Milk or 1 can Coconut Milk with enough milk to make 3 cups
  • 8 baby Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons of Olive Oil


  • Add the olive oil to the roasting pan and heat on the stove top. Add the whole chicken to the pan and brown on both sides.
  • While the chicken is browning. In a bowl add the coconut milk and enough milk (regular, almond, soy) to make 3 cups of liquid. Stir in the spices and the lime zest.
  • Once the chicken is browned add in the baby potatoes and garlic. Pour the coconut milk over the chicken. Cover the roasting pan with a lid and bake at 375 for one hour.
  • After an hour remove the lid and roast until done. Checking for doneness with a meat thermometer. My almost 6-pound bird took 2 hours total to roast.
  • Remove the chicken to a cutting board to rest. While the chicken is resting. Remove the potatoes from the coconut milk mixture and flatten each potato slightly. Just enough to break the skin.
  • Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Return to the oven and bake at 500 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the edges are slightly crispy.
  • Once the chicken has rested remove from the bones and place on a serving platter, along with the roasted potatoes.
  • Use the coconut milk mixture to drizzle over the chicken and serve.
  • Enjoy!
