Coconut Citrus Cilantro Curry Chicken

People are always asking me how to eat and cook healthy food, so here’s a great recipe I whipped up tonight!

This yummy meal left us literally LICKING the leftovers!

I also MAY have licked the bowl, fork, and spoon in my prep…but you’ll never know!

The Sauce costs approximately $5 for an all organic sauce and not only tastes WAY better than store packages, BUT it’s a million times healthier than eating MSG or artificial flavors and chemicals (which are in most causes).

This was super easy to  make and I fit it in to a packed schedule today.

Prep Time :20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes (including rice side dish)

Serves: 4 (with extra marinade below)

Ingredients;

  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (didn’t use organic, but still high-grade meat)

  • 3/4 can Organic Coconut Milk (full fat) (I recommend this brand) it’s in BPA free can

  • 3 TBSP Organic Olive Oil

  • 1 TSP Organic Cumin

  • 1 & 1/2 TSP Organic Sea Salt (use ground version or 1tsp for mineral salt)

  • Optional–1 TBSP Organic Cane Sugar (I did 1 &1/2 TSP because we don’t use a lot of sugar)

  • 2 TSP Organic Lemon Curry Powder

  • Juice and zest of 1 Organic Lime

  • 1/4 cup sliced cilantro

Directions ;

  • Slice chicken breasts in half width wise

  • Cut chicken breasts in half

  • Place chicken breasts into a large bag

  • Pound chicken to the same thickness (I added cuts for more marinade absorption).

  • Make your marinade;

    • Adding 3/4 Cup of your Coconut Milk

    • Add your 3 TBSP oil

    • Add your dry spices (salt, sugar, cumin, and curry powder)

    • Add the zest of the lime and juice

  • Stir your marinade and add to the bag

    • You can choose to put enough marinade to cover the chicken breasts and save the rest for adding sauce later on

    • OR you can add all the marinade to the bad and then make sure you pour the extra marinade and bring to BOIL for at least 3 minutes before consuming.

  • Put the chicken in the fridge until you’re ready to cook and go run your errands!

  • Stove top or grill chicken

  • Pour marinade into a small saucepan and boil if it came out of the bag.

  • Chop cilantro

  • Make rice–I suggest Organic Jasmine Rice :)

  • Cut another lime if desired for additional juice on top of chicken.

 

Serving;

  • Put the rice on the plate (substitute steamed organic veggies)

  • Place chicken on top

  • Drizzle some marinade on top

  • Add cilantro and lime to test!

Volia! You’ve got your Coconut Citrus Cilantro Curry Chicken
