Spicy Chicken in Coconut Milk or Spicy Ginataang Manok is a Filipino Chicken dish that makes use of coconut cream or coconut milk and lots of spicy chili. This simple yet rich dish is easy to prepare and can be eaten along with rice for lunch or dinner.
I tried to make this dish as simple as possible so that you will find it easy to follow. If you have tried to make laing using one of our laing recipes, you’ll notice that we did not use cooking oil in the recipe; the ginger, garlic, and onion were initially cooked by boiling in coconut milk and the other ingredients were added sequentially.
Use any chili pepper that you prefer: the spicier, the better. You can also use cracked red chili or even cayenne pepper powder. As for the coconut cream, I prefer using it instead of coconut milk for this recipe because it is thicker and richer. However, coconut milk works well too.
