minced fresh ginger root
chopped fresh cilantro

We loved this! It was as good as one of our favorite dishes at a Thai restaurant. No changes, except I used lime juice (instead of zest) and I baked it instead of broiled (30 minutes at 350) - delicious!!!
I have to agree with the previous reviewer - the lime/cilantro sauce gets pretty nasty, especially after you have simmered it for 5 mins. I managed to salvage the dish by adding some heavy cream (which, unfortunately, diluted the coconut flavor), and also snipping some fresh cilantro over it before serving (which, Husband said, made it a 4 star recipe) but I would not make this again. Thanks, anyhoo.
Yummy! I could almost drink this marinade. I used only one serrano chile because of my husband and 2 year old. It was still quite spicy, but all three of us loved it. I am definitely going to try the marinade on shrimp and maybe tofu.
Yum! This was good, but next time, I'll add more lime or peppers (or something) to give it more of a kick.
I tried this recipe with 8 thighs too. I doubled everything for the sauce except the sugar because I like gravy and so did my guests. It was GREAT. It is so easy because you can throw all the ingredients in the processor rather than chop it by hand. I was running out of time to grate the lime zest, so instead a squeezed the juice from one lime into the sauce - it was really quite good. My guests and my husband RAVED about it. Also, my broiler doesn't work, so I baked the chicken at 350 for about 30 min. after marinating (but boiling the sauce separately as the recipe indicates).
This is fabulous. I modified it a little- added some scallions and a little more ginger, and I used lime juice instead of zest, and I used dried cilantro instead of fresh. I also added more coconut milk. It was fantastic. Tastes just like it came from a restaurant. Everyone loved it, even my picky boyfriend.
I am not sure if I bought the wrong kind of coconut milk, but this was not good at all. I would not make it again.
Really good recipe. I marinated 8 boneless chicken thighs, instead of just 4. Then, at the end, I added 1/4 cup of coconut milk and 1/4 tsp of soy sauce to the simmering sauce. I will make this again. Thanks!
