I stumbled upon this post by Angsarap this morning and I just had to share it with you. It´s an amazing recipe for orange chicken. I LOVE orange chicken but I have never known how to make it so tonight it´s Orange Chicken for dinner!



Coconut Chicken w. Satay Sause

Coconut Chicken

Coconut Chicken

Serves 4

800gr of chicken breasts or 1200 gr of chicken pieces:

1 egg

150 gr desiccated coconut

140 gr sesame seeds

2 gr black pepper

1 gr grounded nutmeg

2 gr cumin

1 gr cilantro seeds

1gr rose pepper

Coconut, Sesame Seeds & Spices

Put the desiccated coconut and sesame seeds into a large bowl. Add the grounded nutmeg and the cumin powder. Ground the cilantro seeds, the rose pepper and the black pepper for example with pestle and mortar. I normally just do it with the pestle on my chopping board because I find it easier and quicker. Beat the egg with a fork until it’s a little fluffy. Dip the chicken into the egg and then into the coconut blend until the meat is totally coated. Put the chicken onto a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for approximately 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way though, the center needs to be 80°C.

 Grounded Spices

Satay Sauce 

145gr rough peanut butter

1 can or 400ml of creamy coconut milk

½ tsp nutmeg powder

½ tsp cumin powder

¼ tsp cayenne pepper powder


Put everything in a casserole (preferably with a thick bottom) and stir regularly at a medium heat until all the ingredients are carefully mixed together. The result should be a rich satay sauce like the one on the picture.



Put 2 cups of hot water into a casserole (preferably with a thick bottom) and 1 cup of rice, add 1 cinnamon stick, put the lid on and bring to the boil. Let it simmer until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.


Pan fired vegetables


Slice up your favorite vegetables and pan fire them on a screaming hot pan with a little bit of olive oil until they are tender. I use mushrooms, red paprika, celery, carrots, curly flower and red onions.
