Grilled Coconut-Curry Chicken from The Whole30
Serves 2 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
Don’t pour all the curry sauce over the chicken; once the mixture has come into contact with the raw meat, you have to throw it out. Instead, place your chicken in a shallow bowl, and pour a little of the sauce over the chicken. Brush or rub it evenly over the meat, then flip and repeat on the other side. Save the extra sauce to drizzle over the top of this dish before serving, or use it to top tomorrow night’s chicken, shrimp, or vegetables.
To make the curry sauce, melt the cooking fat in a saucepan over medium heat and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. When the fat is hot, add the onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until it becomes aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add the curry powder and stir for 15 to 20 seconds, taking care that the garlic and curry powder don’t burn. Add the tomatoes and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl and let cool. Mix in the coconut cream, salt, and pepper.
Place the chicken in a shallow bowl. Pour some of the sauce over the chicken and brush it on each side.
Preheat a grill to high heat (500°F).
Remove the chicken from the curry sauce and discard the extra sauce. Add the chicken, breast-side down, to the grill and sear until golden brown, about 2 minutes. (When the meat is properly seared it will pull off the grates very easily, so don’t rush this step.) Turn the chicken over so the bone side is down and place over indirect heat. Cover with the grill lid and continue to cook until the internal temperature of the chicken is 160°F, or the breast meat springs back when pressed with a finger. This will take 10 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes. Serve with a squeeze of lime juice and the reserved curry sauce.
Note: Coconut Cream: To make coconut cream, take a can of full-fat coconut milk and put it in the refrigerator for an hour or two—although we recommend leaving at least one can in the fridge at all times for emergency coconut cream situations. (That is something that can actually happen on the Whole30.)
When you open the can, the cream will have risen to the top and become solid, while the coconut water remains at the bottom of the can. Just scoop out the thick stuff at the top and use it in recipes that call for coconut cream. You can also find prepared coconut cream or “culinary coconut milk” at some health food stores, but why would you pay extra when the only thing required to make your own is opening your refrigerator?
Note: If you don’t have a grill, you can bake the chicken in the oven. Turn the oven to Broil (or 500°F), and place the raw chicken in a baking dish. Sear the chicken in the oven for 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Brush the chicken with the curry sauce and finish cooking in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on thickness), until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.

The rules are as follows: I'm putting them here so you can decide right off if you can do this or not:
Do not consume added sugar, real or artificial. No maple syrup, honey, agave nectar, coconut sugar,
date syrup, stevia, Splenda, Equal, Nutrasweet, xylitol, etc. NO SWEETENERS INCLUDING HIDDEN SUGARS (my emphasis)
Do not consume alcohol, in any form, not even for cooking.
Do not eat grains. This includes (but is not limited to) wheat, rye, barley, oats, corn, rice, millet, bulgur,
sorghum, sprouted grains, and all gluten-free pseudo-cereals like quinoa, amaranth, and buckwheat.
NO HIDDEN GRAINS OR GRAINS OR PSEUDO GRAINS
Do not eat legumes. This includes beans of all kinds (black, red, pinto, navy, white, kidney, lima, fava,
etc.), peas, chickpeas, lentils, and peanuts. No peanut butter, either. This also includes all forms of soy –
soy sauce, miso, tofu, tempeh, edamame, and all the ways we sneak soy into foods (like lecithin).
NO BEANS AND NO PRODUCTS DERIVED FROM BEANS
Do not eat dairy. This includes cow, goat, or sheep’s milk products like milk, cream, cheese, kefir,
yogurt, sour cream, ice cream, or frozen yogurt.
Do not consume carrageenan, MSG, or sulfites. If these ingredients appear in any form on the label of
your processed food or beverage, it’s out for the Whole30. (A lot of processed foods have these)
Do not consume baked goods, junk foods, or treats with “approved” ingredients. Recreating
or buying sweets, treats, and foods-with-no-brakes (even if the ingredients are technically
compliant) is totally missing the point of the Whole30, and will compromise your life-changing
results. These are the same foods that got you into health-trouble in the first place—and a pancake is
still a pancake, even if it is made with coconut flour. (Only eat things in this book)
Some specific foods that fall under this rule include: pancakes, waffles, bread, tortillas, biscuits,
muffins, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, pizza crust, cereal, or ice cream. No commercially-prepared
chips (potato, tortilla, plantain, etc.) or French fries either.
Bottom Line: ONLY foods listed in this book for 30 days, no prepared foods and no fast food or restaurant food.
This is difficult. There are food services that send you "whole30" ingredients to cook, if you find shopping difficult and planning worse, that could work for you.
Bottom line: this is VERY tough. Can it be done? Sure. But be certain you know what the first 30 days entail before you set yourself up for frustration and failure.
