I also had a slight issue with our barbecue, so went for the safer option of pan-frying the chicken (I used breasts) skin side down and finishing off under the grill flipping over once. You could also pan fry and then bake them in the oven for 20 minutes too. The chicken was really moist and tasty, there was a good level of chilli involved with a lovely sweetness at the same time, but now overly sweet or gloopy like a typical bottle of sweet chilli sauce.
As it had quite a kick, the kids just had plain chicken and noodles though I think adding extra coconut milk or mixing the marinade with yogurt would have toned it down so I’ll try that next time. We really enjoyed the chicken with noodles and would definitely use this sauce for the barbecue next time to get that really intense hit of flavour.

Ayam Percik or ‘Splash Chicken’
Made with World Foods Chilli Coconut Marinade
1 bottle World Foods Malaysian Chilli Coconut Madinade (save some to splash on top during cooking or to splash over for noddles, if using)
6 chicken thighs (I used four breasts, skin on)
1 tablespoon cooking oil
2 spring onions, chopped for garnish
Method:1. Marinate chicken with the marinade for at least 30 minutes.
2. Preheat grill/oven/barbeque
3. Cook meat on medium heat, turning occasionally until done and slightly charred (barbeque about 20-30 minutes depending on size/OR pan fry for five minutes on each side then place under the grill for five minutes on each side OR pay fry and then bake in the oven for twenty minutes until cooked through) Spread on some more marinade during the cooking process.
4. Serve hot with white rice or bread or as I did, with noodles stir-fried with spring onions and baby corn.
The sauce can also be used to marinade vegetables or fish…coconut chilli prawns sound good.
