Grilled Coconut-Curry Chicken from The Whole30
Serves 2 | Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
Don’t pour all the curry sauce over the chicken; once the mixture has come into contact with the raw meat, you have to throw it out. Instead, place your chicken in a shallow bowl, and pour a little of the sauce over the chicken. Brush or rub it evenly over the meat, then flip and repeat on the other side. Save the extra sauce to drizzle over the top of this dish before serving, or use it to top tomorrow night’s chicken, shrimp, or vegetables.
To make the curry sauce, melt the cooking fat in a saucepan over medium heat and swirl to coat the bottom of the pan. When the fat is hot, add the onion and cook, stirring, until translucent, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and stir until it becomes aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add the curry powder and stir for 15 to 20 seconds, taking care that the garlic and curry powder don’t burn. Add the tomatoes and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a mixing bowl and let cool. Mix in the coconut cream, salt, and pepper.
Place the chicken in a shallow bowl. Pour some of the sauce over the chicken and brush it on each side.
Preheat a grill to high heat (500°F).
Remove the chicken from the curry sauce and discard the extra sauce. Add the chicken, breast-side down, to the grill and sear until golden brown, about 2 minutes. (When the meat is properly seared it will pull off the grates very easily, so don’t rush this step.) Turn the chicken over so the bone side is down and place over indirect heat. Cover with the grill lid and continue to cook until the internal temperature of the chicken is 160°F, or the breast meat springs back when pressed with a finger. This will take 10 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes. Serve with a squeeze of lime juice and the reserved curry sauce.
Note: Coconut Cream: To make coconut cream, take a can of full-fat coconut milk and put it in the refrigerator for an hour or two—although we recommend leaving at least one can in the fridge at all times for emergency coconut cream situations. (That is something that can actually happen on the Whole30.)
When you open the can, the cream will have risen to the top and become solid, while the coconut water remains at the bottom of the can. Just scoop out the thick stuff at the top and use it in recipes that call for coconut cream. You can also find prepared coconut cream or “culinary coconut milk” at some health food stores, but why would you pay extra when the only thing required to make your own is opening your refrigerator?
Note: If you don’t have a grill, you can bake the chicken in the oven. Turn the oven to Broil (or 500°F), and place the raw chicken in a baking dish. Sear the chicken in the oven for 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Brush the chicken with the curry sauce and finish cooking in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on thickness), until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.

“Need some tough love cleaning up a lousy diet? Dallas and Melissa Hartwig ask that you enlist in their 30-day boot camp—and you’ll emerge a brand new person.”—The Los Angeles Times
“Here is the nutrition book we’ve been waiting for. It Starts with Food gives us common sense and counseling to help you break through the barriers and figure out your own optimal diet.” —Emily Deans, M.D., Harvard Medical School
“I have done the Whole30 and prescribe it to my patients … In my clinical practice, I have had patients lose weight, lower the amount of insulin they need to take by up to 80%, lower their hemoglobin A1c by three full points in three months, improve or completely resolve symptoms of brain fog, fatigue, and chronic pain. More importantly, patients look and feel better when they eat this way.”—Luc Readinger, M.D. VMH Family Practice and Complementary Medicine
"I use the Whole30 protocol in conjunction with acupuncture in a wide range of patients, from those looking for relief from a specific pain complaint to those suffering from more amorphous diagnosis (chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, etc.). I’ve had over 30 patients complete the Whole30 as part of their treatment plan. I have had two rheumatologists and a neurologist contact me to find out what kind of magic I am performing on their patients! I’ve also seen extremely good results using the Whole30 protocol in post-surgery patients who are not yet ready for active rehab. It gives them a tool to hasten their recovery and also manage post-surgical inflammation in a way drugs simply cannot.”—Duncan Macdonald, L.Ac., San Francisco, CA
“The Whole30 is by far one of the best programs available to help individuals learn how and why to make the best food choices. While Dallas and Melissa’s information is based on credible scientific references, the information is presented in an easy-to-understand and captivating manner. There are thousands of testimonials available that give credit to this program’s success, and I highly recommend it.”—Stephanie Greunke, R.D.
“I love this program and recommend it to all my chronic pain patients. I’m typically not one to jump on any bandwagons but I truly think the research and what I have seen in my clinical experience speak for themselves. Thank you Whole30 for improving my life and the lives of my patients.”—Matthew Lane, D.C. F.I.T. Muscle & Joint Clinic --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
