And this particular recipe is derived from my palette that I’ve developed from my travels in the far east.

So, I’m sharing the recipe from the Amo Cooks series; Oven Baked Chicken in Coconut Milk with the promise that you will also try it and let me know if you loved it as much as I did.





  • 2 chicken breasts seasoned with salt and pepper

  • Heat a grill pan and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Grill chicken on both sides for about 5 minutes each side and set aside.
  • Take the remaining oil in an oven proof skillet and heat it. Add the garlic and onions till onions are translucent.
  • Add cherry tomatoes and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Add basil and coconut milk and cook till the leaves are wilted.
  • Add the cream cheese and Parmesan. Add salt at this point if you feel the sauce needs it.
