Grilled Chicken

  • Combine the avocado oil and coconut milk in a ziplock bag. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper and place in the bag with the marinade. Store in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 6 hours.
  • Prepare one side of your grill for high, direct heat.
  • Make drainage holes in a sheet of aluminum foil with a grilling fork. Place foil sheet on grill grate. Place chicken on foil, baste both sides with BBQ sauce and cook, flipping once and basting with remaining sauce until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes on each side. Serve immediately, garnish with parsley or chives if desired.
