Coconut ChickenSubmitted by: TESSA_NJ
IntroductionLo carb coconut chicken (slightly spicy and really yummy!) Lo carb coconut chicken (slightly spicy and really yummy!)
3 chicken breasts (about 1 3/4 pounds)
1 tsp salt
2 garlic cloves (I use the canned kind)
1 tblsp ginger (I use the stuff in a tube)
1/2 onion chopped
1 jalapeno pepper (seeded) and minced
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (find the lowest carb kind- mine is 1g per 1/2 cup)
1 cup frozen peas
Heat a non-stick frying pan, then add chicken. I usually cut each of the breasts into 3, just to reduce the cooking time. Don't move them for 3 minutes- let them brown. Flip over and add the garlic, ginger, onion and jalapeno. Stir and cook until onion is started to get soft. Add the coconut milk and stir. Cook on lower hear (simmer) for another 7-10 minutes (until chicken is just a little pink inside still). Toss in the peas and cook for another minute or two.
Number of Servings: 4
