This is one of those recipes that I’ve been meaning to share with you guys for absolute MONTHS. Maybe even a year. It’s been a long time. But I never make it when I can take pictures, because it’s always a quick throw together dinner.
Meaning – this dinner is super easy, you guys.
One skillet is all you need to brown your chicken, make your sauce, and then add the chicken back in to simmer to delicious perfection.
I’d like to take just a minute to talk about this sauce.
Everyone who know me knows that I’m a sauce girl. Dip for fries? Yes, please. Extra salad dressing? Yes, please. All those lovely little sauces that come at the beginning of your Indian meal with those crispy crackers. YES, please.
And when we are out for Thai and get curry, I just eat it like it’s a soup. Because SAUCE.
So, this Creamy Coconut Lime Skillet Chicken is really one of my favorite meals to make at home, because the sauce you get out of it is so creamy and full of big, bold, delicious flavors, that I could really just eat it all up with a spoon.
I actually did that after taking these photos…. I packaged it up for dinner the next night…but I left behind a good amount of sauce….and I ate said sauce out of the skillet with a spoon.
YOU WILL WANT TO TOO.
I try to keep our dinners low carb, so I served this Creamy Coconut Lime Skillet Chicken with a simple saute of orange bell peppers and cauliflower rice, but it would also be great over some rice noodles, brown rice or mashed sweet potatoes. Yes! I need to try that mashed sweet potato idea. It just came to me.
