In our hustle-bustle world, it’s so nice to have a home cooked meal and the chance to spend some relaxing time around the dinner table with our families.
If you have extra time earlier in the week, make some extra rice so this dish pulls together quickly.
Here is a chicken dish that is perfect for busy days when you don’t have a lot of time to cook.
This is a great recipe that pulls together quickly,
- 8-9 boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- salt & pepper
- 1 lime
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 can coconut milk
Squeeze a small amount of the lime over chicken.
Lightly salt and pepper both sides of the chicken and let sit for about 5 minutes,
Using medium-high heat, melt the oil and butter in a large skillet and sear chicken on both sides until well browned.
Lower the heat to medium and add garlic to the pan. Cook for about 2 minutes, careful not to burn.
Add the coconut milk and ginger to the pan. Move chicken around to stir and combine.
Squeeze the remaining lime over all.
Bring to a very light boil; cover and reduce heat. Cook covered for about 10 minutes.
Uncover and let simmer on low for about 10 -15 minutes, depending on the size of your chicken pieces.
Searing means to “brown food quickly” on all sides over high heat. This locks in the juices and gives us a tastier chicken.
This dish is delicious served with brown or white rice. Drizzle the sauce over the rice.
