Author Notes: This was is my best chicken recipe so far. I absolutely love the combination of flavors, and curry is always a favorite of mine. The apples got deliciously soft and creamy inside. Zahirah

Serves 6 portions

  • 1 Chicken, whole
  • 3 Onions, cut into wedges
  • 3 Potatoes, cut into wedges
  • 3 Granny Smith apples, cut into wedges
  • 2 cups Coconut milk
  • 1 cup Chicken stock, preferably homemade
  • 1/2 cup Shredded coconut
  • 3 tablespoons Curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons Red pepper flakes
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt & Pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C
  2. Prepare the onions, potatoes, and apples, and line the roasting pan with them.
  3. After washing down the bird, rub it all over with olive oil and then curry. Place it in the roasting pan, on top of the apples and veggies, and sprinkle everything with salt, pepper, shredded coconut, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Bathe everything with chicken stock and then coconut milk.
  5. Place the pan into the oven for at least an hour, depending on the size of your bird. The large, free-range chickens I purchase generally take between 1 hour and 20 minutes and 1 hour 45 minutes. Halfway through, baste the chicken and the apples/veggies with some of the sauce.
  6. Enjoy!

This recipe looks great! Where does the shredded coconut come into play and should it be unsweetened? I can't wait to make this tonight!

Thanks for that question! I just fixed the instructions. Just sprinkle over everything. I really love this recipe, and people always rave about it whenever I serve it. Coconut is a big part of my diet, especially since I try to avoid dairy!

This is by far my favorite roasted chicken so far. Tomorrow I'm uploading my second favorite recipe.

It's funny: I know how lucky I am to be able to take this time off, but sometimes I do feel like I should speed up with figuring out what I want to do next. I'm not used to having free time.

The funniest thing of all is that before the time off, I hated cooking. So I've definitely made at least one great discovery about myself since I stopped working!

This looks great, I can't wait to try it out! I'm envious of your sabbatical life you are leading now!
