Nigerian Hot Coconut Rice With Peppered Chicken

     simple coconut rice with peppered chicken
This coconut rice is simple because it was cooked with just coconut milk, crayfish, pepper and seasoning. It was cooked with powdered coconut, so, I did not go through the process of grating coconuts.
Unlike my BEACH COCONUT RICE that was moderately cooked, this
one was actually overcooked and soft.

For the PEPPER SAUCE, I used it because I wanted that fried pepper taste in the coconut rice.



  1. rice 2 cups
  2. coconut milk powder 2 sachets
  3. pepper sauce to desired taste
  4. 1/3 cup ground crayfish
  5. knorr seasoning cubes
  6. 1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used soya oil)
  7. salt to taste.
  8. water

Cooking Steps For Peppered chicken Coconut Rice:

  • Fry onion in oil, add chicken stock to the fried onion, allow to boil
  • Mix coconut milk with powder with some water and add to boiling pot, add seasoning and salt, add pepper sauce and allow to boil
  • Add washed rice, check for salt, reduce heat and allow to simmer. If you want your rice over cooked and soft, then, you may need to check and add some more water and salt
  • Cook in low heat till tender and serve with BOILED AND  DRY FRIED SOFT CHICKEN. While dry frying, when you feel like the fried chicken is brown enough, add your pepper sauce to it and stir.
    For dry frying chicken, if the oil from the chicken is not enough to fry it nicely, then add a few drops of oil to the corners of your pan.
  • Enjoy!

    The last comment is from Meg O. Thanks @Eya for your anticipated response.

  7. Hi Meg O, ask sellers of baking items. Those who sell flour, eggs,
    and other baking items OR, shops where seasoning and different spices are sold. Coconut milk powder is sold in sachets.

    Hi, first time commenting here, nice blog you got going, for those(like me) who find it really streinous grating coconut, blending works just fine, unshell the coconut, cut in tiny bits and blend, if you don't have a blender,you can take it to the market and mill it. Saves a lot of time and you get same result as grating.

  14. Hi Bunny, thanks for the blending tip. I haven't tried blending before.

    I still don't get why rice should taste like coconut (๏̯๏) .. Never been a fan of it. Sha you guys should enjoy!

    1. I get you, RICE SHOULD TASTE ONLY LIKE TOMATOES RIGHT? Anyway, I like those your carved two eyes and semi circle nose.
