Having a busy day? Well, me too! But dinner still has to be made and a family needs to be fed. On days like this, a no-fuss yet delicious meal is always my first choice. This creamy One Pot Chicken in Lime Coconut Sauce, a variation on a favorite One Pot Shrimp in Coconut Sauce, came in handy… making my life easier and my household happy. This gluten-free chicken dish is hearty, comforting — and SUPER delish… Something you won’t want to miss! 😉
It is made from simple ingredients such as seasoned chicken drumsticks browned in vegetable oil, sauteed vegetables blended with coconut milk and fresh lime juice in a blender, and cream cheese to thicken the sauce and make it creamier. Basil, parsley, and red jalapenos garnish the dish beautifully, providing extra aroma and color.
It is a bold dish with contrasting textures and colors — which can preferably be served atop a helping of white rice — or noodles, if desired. Mild sides make the best pairs for a bold dish like this!
Time is no problem in this case. This Chicken in Lime Coconut Sauce can be prepared in about 45 minutes… for the most part cooking all by itself in a pot.
It is food at its best — that can be enjoyed all year round!
Sit down with your family and enjoy a heartfelt, down home meal…
