Author: ©Amy Johnson | She Wears Many Hats Recipe type: Main

Ingredients
6 tablespoons canned coconut milk
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (or other citrus on hand) 2 tablespoons brown sugar
3⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
3⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 pound whole bone-in chicken (skin on), cut up


Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
2. Whisk together all ingredients (except chicken) until well combined. Toss chicken in mixture until coated.

Arrange in oven-proof skillet or dutch oven.
3. Bake uncovered 30 minutes, or until chicken is done.



Notes
If time permits, marinate the chicken in the coconut milk mixture up to a whole day ahead, refrigerated in a zip-top plastic bag. Personally, I mixed it all up and let the chicken marinate then started the oven and prepped the rest of dinner. But overnight would certainly amp up the flavor.
Also, before measuring the coconut milk, make sure it is mixed well, as it does tend to separate in the can.

Let me know how it works for you!! Happy Cooking!! 
Bye for now
