Change up how you serve dinner by cooking up this delicious Whole30 Creamy Chicken Dish! Our Zesty Cilantro sauce gives this recipe that burst of flavor most dinner dishes are missing! Your tastebuds will thank you later.
2 tbsp of Zesty Cilantro for marinating the chicken
juice of 1 lime
4 chicken breasts pounded
2 tbsp of Whole30® compliant oil
1 cup of coconut milk from a can (1/2 a can)
1/4 cup Zesty Cilantro
Salt and pepper to taste
Lime slices and chopped cilantro to garnish (optional)
POUND the chicken breasts to make them even in thickness. Place them in a container with juice of one lime, 2 tbsp of our Zesty Cilantro, and a dash of salt and pepper. Toss to coat.
HEAT your choice of oil on a large skillet over medium heat and cook the chicken breasts about 4 minutes each side (we did them in 2 batches) until the chicken begins to brown. Transfer the chicken breasts to a plate.
AFTER cooking all of the chicken, in the same pan, add the coconut milk and the cilantro sauce. Stir to combine.
ADD the chicken breasts again to the skillet, cover them with the sauce and turn the heat to low. Let the skillet simmer for 5 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked.
* Serve with veggies or cauliflower rice! We paired it with oven baked Brussel sprouts and then drizzled some of the extra sauce on top!
