Ingredients

For marinade

  • 6 cm piece fresh ginger
  • 2 red chillies, de-seeded (See Note 1)
  • 3 Asian shallots
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For coconut sauce

  • 5 Asian shallots
  • 2 fresh red chillies, de-seeded
  • 3 cm knob fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, or palm sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind paste
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 ¼ cups coconut milk

Instructions

  • Make cuts in skin and meat of chicken. Set aside.
  • Grind marinade ingredients into a paste and rub into chicken. Grill on rack under high heat (or on a BBQ) until the skin is charred in places, turn and repeat on other side.
  • While this is happening make the sauce: Chop the spice paste ingredients and blend finely.
  • Heat oil in a pot and fry the spice paste for 3 - 4 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add coconut milk and simmer, stirring, until reduced by half.
  • Season with salt and cook for 5 - 7 minutes until sauce thickens.
  • To complete the dish: Coat each piece of grilled chicken in the sauce and then finish cooking by roasting at 250°C/230°C fan-forced (480°F ; Gas Mark 9) for 30 minutes, or until cooked through. Baste a few times with more sauce as it cooks or bring remaining sauce to simmer in pot and serve alongside chicken when cooked..
