  • 4 to 6 chicken pieces breast, wings, or thighs or 6 to 8 drumsticks
  • ¼ cup flour mixed with 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 ¼ cups coconut milk
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • ½ pound whole button or baby portobello mushrooms, cleaned
  • ½ teaspoon Noubess Original Hot and Spicy Sauce or 2 fresh red chiles diced (optional)
  • Noubess Garlic and Herb Seasoning


  • Rinse the chicken and dry with paper towels. Normally I would clean the chicken with lemon or vinegar - as this is what I am accustomed to.
  • Season the clean chicken with the flour-salt mixture. It is best to apply a light coating.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat, and fry the chicken until golden.
  • Remove the chicken pieces from the heat, pour the excess oil into a separate skillet, and set aside. 
  • Return the chicken pieces to the stove in the same skillet without rinsing it - the browned base retains the chicken juices and adds flavor.
  • Add the coconut milk and simmer on very low heat.
  • Using the leftover oil, sauté the onion, garlic, mushrooms, chiles, or hot sauce until the onions soften and are brown.
  • Add to the chicken simmering in the coconut milk—season to taste with the Noubess Garlic and Herbs Seasoning.
  • Continue to simmer gently for 20 minutes or until the chicken is tender and the sauce has thickened. 
  • Remove and serve immediately.
