I’m not usually a huge fan of coconut but boy am I loving everything chicken and coconut at the moment, particularly with Thai flavours. I recently made my Thai Chicken Sausage Rolls and the flavours inspired these parcels.
They are mild enough for the kiddies. They have a good kick of lime so if you aren’t a fan of lime, reduce the amount. If you like things a little hotter you can certainly add more chilli to suit your tastes.
The coconut chicken mixture is delicious on rice or rice noodles if you prefer those over pastry. You could certainly make pies rather than parcels as well. The mixture tastes even better the next day once the flavours have really developed. If you get a chance to make it the day before I highly recommend it. Its still delicious fresh.
Below are my instructions for both the tmx and traditional cooking methods for my Thai Coconut Chicken Parcels. The tmx version will have a little excess sauce left when making the parcel version. You do not need to add all of the sauce to the pastry.
