Chicken in Zesty Lime-Cilantro Sauce

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 large cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 can (4 ounces) diced green chilies
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala or curry powder
  • 3 green onions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cooked rice of choice


Heat the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté, stirring continually, until fragrant but not browned, about one minute.

Add the chicken and sauté until it is lightly browned on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add the coconut milk, chilies, lime juice, lime zest, and garam masala or curry powder, scraping up any browned bits that have adhered to the pan.

Bring to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked. Turn off the heat and stir in the green onions and cilantro, mixing well.

Allow to sit for a minute or two, then finish with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over cooked rice.
