This chicken came out very tender and moist. I marinated for 3 hours, and used the marinade to baste for the first hour and a half. I also made sure I pulled the skin up and soaked the meat underneath with the marinade. I didn't get a lot of flavor from the marinade in the meat, so I was disappointed in that. Everything aside, my roast chicken was very moist, and the meat can be used in any recipe calling for cooked chicken. I had just hoped for more flavor from the marinade. Made for Best of 2011 Tag game.
it's a winner!
10 stars for this! I made as written up to the cooking method, and then put it on the outdoor rotisserie instead of the oven. Turned out great. Will make this again during the winter when I don't mind using the oven :) I also think I will make a double batch of the marinade and set half aside to make a sauce from. Would be great over rice to go with the chicken.
Our chicken was nice and moist and had a lovely subtle flavour. I will make this again, but use maybe double (or more) of the green curry paste. I can't wait for leftovers (I'm thinking a thai style soup). Thanks Jules.
Very juicy and flavorful fresh out of the oven, as were the leftovers. I used low fat coconut milk, increased the chopped cilantro (stems and all) to 1/2 cup, decreased the fish sauce by half (to lower the sodium content), and increased the green curry paste to replace the heat and flavor from the small fresh chili I didn't have on hand. Since my chicken was over 4 lbs., I roasted it 1.5 hours at 350* and 30 minutes at 375*. Leftover meat was great in a salad with Thai flavors and in a soup (I cooked the chicken carcass in chicken broth for an hour, removed the bones, skimmed off the fat, and added green curry paste, fresh minced cilantro stems, cut green beans, white corn kernals, slivered bamboo shoots, the last of the leftover chicken meat, and a cup of leftover cooked rice to the broth. Brought it to a simmer, and it, too, was fabulous. I can't wait for the weather to cooperate so I can roast the chicken outdoors on my charcoal grill. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Jewelies! It's a real favorite.
After seeing the list of ingredients, I thought it would be a recipe that I would really enjoy. However, the combination didn't work for me on a roasted chicken. I was surprised how subtle the flavours were, yet the coconut milk I found overpowering. Very tender. Thank you for posting this recipe.
Great taste! I used a large chicken so it took a bit longer but it was worth it. I used mild canned chopped chilis (1 large tbsp. Served it with Coconut Ginger rice Coconut Ginger Rice which was great too. Sauteed mushrooms with butter and soy sauce and had a nice salad too. Loved it. Thanks!
Big five stars here. I had a very small chicken, and wasn't sure about the roasting time, so I cut it in pieces, marinated the small pieces for almost an hour, then baked them until done. Just excellent. Served with roasted asparagus and polenta. Watermelon for dessert. Perfect meal!
This was wonderful Jewelies, I used an organic chicken, red curry paste & cilantro leaves,I also made my own coconut milk. The chicken smelled amazing and tasted just as great. It was moist and juicy with a nice crisp skin. I will definitely be making this again.
I didn't have green curry paste (or the motivation to make any), so I just used a couple teaspoons of curry powder. Good gawd! The aroma that filled my house!
