A baked chicken recipe doesn’t have to be boring. This coconut lime chicken roast takes Thai flavors like ginger and coconut milk and uses them in a marinade that soaks into the meat for a rich and juicy meal good to the last bite.


  • 1 oz. ginger
  • 1 lb. carrots
  • 1 lb. Giant Eagle Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 2 limes
  • ½ bunch cilantro
  • 1 can (13.66 fl. oz.) Thai Kitchen unsweetened coconut milk
  • ¼ cup Giant Eagle light brown pure sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Nature's Basket fresh chicken, whole bird


  Prep Time: 1 hr., 15 min. • Cook Time: 1 hr.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Slice the ginger. Peel and cut the carrots in half lengthwise. Cut the potatoes into wedges. Grate the zest from the limes and squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Pluck the cilantro leaves.

Combine the sliced ginger with the coconut milk, brown sugar, soy sauce, lime juice, and zest. Place the chicken in a jumbo zip lock bag or a brining bag and add about ½ of the coconut milk mixture. Seal the bag, place on a plate in case it leaks, and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour or up to overnight.

When ready to bake, place the carrots and potato wedges in a roasting pan. Use tongs to remove the marinated chicken and place on top of the potatoes and carrots. Discard any remaining marinade in the bag.

Place in the oven and roast. Baste the chicken every 15 minutes or so with the reserved coconut milk marinade until the chicken is cooked through, about an hour.* Remove from the oven and let rest at least 10 minutes. Serve with the roasted carrots and potatoes and garnish with the cilantro.

*For food safety, cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165°F.
