  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, (minced or finely grated)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 pounds bone-in skin-on chicken thighs or 1 whole chicken, cut up into 8 pieces

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine the coconut milk, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, ginger, garlic, salt and cinnamon.
  2. Place the chicken in a ziploc bag or glass baking dish and pour the marinade over. Toss to coat. Close up the bag or cover the baking dish with plastic wrap. Marinate for at least 4 hours, and up to 24.
