    luckycloud29's Note:

    My husband is famous for this wonderfully easy grilled chicken. People are usually skeptical about its green color but they always fall in love with its spicy, Asian flavor and tender texture.

      Oh! This was GOOOOD!! It was easy, it's definitely green (and then turns a bit grey when cooked) and it's delicious. Apparently my bunch of cilantro was too small because my marinade was not at all thick and pasty. I recommend you add the coconut milk incrementally in order to get the proper thickness. No matter, I put it all in a baking dish and baked it 1 hour at 350° since our grill is on the fritz and I didn't want to have to watch the broiler closely for that long. Congrats to your dh, boomoo! This is killer!!
