Sometimes I have people ask what we eat for meals. So, today for lunch Tate had last night’s leftovers which consisted of grass-fed ground beef, cumin, some celtic salt and a jar of salsa. I also used organic blue corn taco shells because blue corn is less likely to trigger allergies (with kids) than regular yellow corn and it’s organic, to ensure that it’s not GMO. Easy enough!
Oh my goodness that big open smile. Did I ever tell y’all the story of how my (at the time ) newly 4-year-old got (or forced) a “loose tooth”, just like his sister and cousin. Oh Tater…
For dinner tonight, we used our Costco organic chicken that I cut up, and added these flavors to it:
Here is the list of what you will need for your Lime Coconut Chicken:
- 1.5-2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- zest of 1 lime
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 2 tbsp tamari gluten free soy sauce
- 2 tsp celtic salt
- 2 tbsp coconut palm sugar (or honey)
- 1 tsp curry powder (or 2 tsp, depending on preference)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (I used the light)
- pinch cayenne
- coconut oil for cooking
- fresh cilantro, chopped for garnish
Cut up your chicken, add everything listed above except for the cilantro, and let marinate in a zip lock bag for at least a few hours in the refrigerator.
I let mine sit all day but then came home in between kids sporting activities (so for 20 minutes) and quickly cooked this on my cast iron skillet with some coconut oil. I put about 1-2 tbsp of oil in the hot pan, then added the chicken. Once the chicken was well seared and mostly cooked, I then poured in the rest of the sauce to heat it up for a couple of minutes.
Everyone ate it and no one complained, which is always a win in my book…
