Coconut-Curry Braised Chicken Legs
This budget-friendly chicken recipe is what we turn to when we want a satisfying, yet effortless, weeknight dinner that utilizes ingredients we already have in our pantry. Here at Goodtaste, we are big fans of all things GOYA foods, especially their creamy coconut milk. This canned staple is the hero of these unctuous braised chicken legs. When combined with our favorite store-bought curry paste, fresh ginger, garlic and a splash of fish sauce, the sauce cooks down to create an incredibly flavorful bath for fall-off-the-bone tender chicken.
Another reason we love this recipe? You don’t have to brown the chicken before it goes in the oven, saving you an extra step. We learned this clever tip from one of our favorite bloggers, Alexandra’s Kitchen, who proved that the prolonged time in the oven plus the fat and natural sugars of the coconut milk help the chicken brown on its own.
