Coconut Lime Chicken (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)

Ingredients
  1. 1 shallot, diced
  2. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  3. 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated on a microplane
  4. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (plus more for topping)
  5. 1/3 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  6. 4 chicken breasts
  7. 2 tbsp avocado oil (or coconut oil)
  8. 1/4 cup chicken broth
  9. 1.5 cups full fat coconut milk
  10. Salt and pepper
  11. Lime slices for topping (optional)

Instructions
  • Prep shallot, garlic, ginger and cilantro as noted. Juice limes and set aside.
  • Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of parchment paper and pound them down to make them even in thickness. Sprinkle each side of the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add avocado oil.
  • Once hot, add the chicken to the pan (you may have to cook the chicken in 2 batches depending on the size of your pan). Cook, without disturbing for 3-4 minutes, until a nice brown crust has formed. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes on the other side, until the chicken is mostly cooked through.
  • Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside. Lower the heat to medium.
