Gorgeous, a little bit different and a super healthy meal option. Perfect for summer and dining al fresco, or winter months where the spice will warm you through.
- 1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. Coat chicken and leave to marinade for at least 2 hours but preferably overnight.
- 2. To make the salad mix the tomatoes, cucumber, shallots and fresh coconut together. In a pestle and mortar pound the red chilli with a pinch of salt. Mix in the lime juice and coconut milk. Toss into the salad and mix in the fresh coriander leaves.
- 3. Heat a griddle on high until almost smoking. Spritz the chicken thighs with the oil then lay on the griddle and grill for 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
- 4. Slice the plantain on the diagonal and griddle for 3 minutes turning halfway through. Serve the salad on a plate with two chicken thighs and some griddled plantain.
