YUMMY SUMMER RECIPE ~ Creamy Coconut Chicken
Written by on Monday, August 19th, 2013

Don’t you LOVE recipes that are: yummy, easy and quick to make… and healthy is good too!

This recipe matches that criteria and is one of my family’s favorites, especially in the Summer.

I originally found this recipe on the www.Publix.com (grocery store chain) website (“Apron’s Meals”).  Like everyone else, I tweak my recipes to suit my taste, but this one stays pretty close to the original and garners me TONS of compliments every time I make it.

So, if it looks good to you too, try it and enjoy the YUMMY!

to share with those of you who are like me… visual learners! LOL 😉

Watch for sales, in your grocery store, on organic chicken tenders/tenderloins.  Wash, dry, season & brown the chicken, using a small amount of butter, olive oil or any other healthy oil you prefer…. organic coconut oil is good too.

step 1

Remove the browned (thoroughly cooked chicken) onto a plate and add the green onions, cumin & garlic.

step 2a

If it seems too dry, add a little water while cooking.

step 3

Add the juice of a fresh lime (I use the entire lime) and use a spoon to break up the pulp, to extract the maximum amount of juice.

I like to grind the remaining lime peel in the garbage disposal (to make it smell nice) or add it to your compost pile.

step 4b     step 5     step 4c

Add the coconut milk (there is also a “lite” coconut milk) and kosher salt… mix well & simmer.

step 6     step 7

Place the chicken back in the pan and mix well.

step 9     step 10

In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a YUMMY dish your family will love.  Serve over your favorite rice, alongside your favorite veggie.

Want to add in more texture?  Try mushrooms, asparagus, capers, etc.

      It looks as though they changed their website which created a glitch. But, I fixed the link Shasta and tried it myself and it worked. Please try it again and let me know if you have any more issues. Thank you for letting me know, eileen
