  • Set up

    Spread the coconut on a baking sheet, then bake it for 2-3 minutes in order to get a golden brown color. Cut the chicken (3-4 strips by pieces). Chop the garlic, pick the leaves from the herbs. Roast the pine nuts.

  • Chicken skewers

    In a bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients together. Add the chicken strips, stir well, then cover and store them in the fridge (ideally 24 hours, otherwise 4h). Put the chicken strips on the skewers in a serpentine, bake just before serving them for about 10-12 minutes. Season the yogurt with salt and pepper for dipping.

  • Gremolata sauce

    In a bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, cilantro, mint, pine nuts, the lime zest and a little lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You can also mix all the ingredients in a blender to make a pesto out of it. Add the coconut at the last moment, mix by hand. Keep some of the grated coconut for finishing.

Here we use the top chicken legs, it's the least dry part but you can also use chicken breast. In this case adapt the cooking time.
