Sauted Chicken Breasts with Coconut Milk

  • 4 chicken breasts    
  • 2  tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk    
  • 1 large bunch of scallions or green onions, chopped    
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime



Pound the thicker side of the chicken breast between sheets of plastic wrap to make it more even in thickness overall. Season lightly with salt.

Heat the coconut oil in a skillet over moderate heat. Add the chicken breasts and saute the chicken without disturbing the pieces for 4 to 5

Turn the chicken over to on other side and saute, undisturbed again for another 4 to 5 minutes or until the interior is cooked through. You'll know it’s time to turn the chicken over when the top looks opaque.

Remove the chicken to a plate and squeeze the juice from the lime into the skillet and stir; add the coconut milk, bring it to a simmer. Return chicken breasts and add chopped cilantro and green onions. Heat and serve. Good with rice.

Serves 4 people.
