Poulet au Coco simply means Chicken with Coconut. It’s a simple classic meal from Comoros, lovingly and experimentally made by Eat the Olympics (who aim to eat their way round all the countries in the London 2012 Olympics). Try out the recipe – it scored a solid Gold!



1kg chicken breast, diced
25g butter
2 onions, chopped
6 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp curry powder
1 x tin coconut milk
1 tsp fresh thyme
5 spring onions, chopped
1 bunch parsley, finely chopped


1. Fry the chicken in the butter until golden brown on all sides then add the onion, garlic and curry powder. Stir-fry the mixture for 5 minutes then add the coconut milk, thyme, spring onions and parsley

2. Season with salt and pepper, stir well and allow to simmer for 20 minutes

3. Serve on a bed of rice
