Healthy Eating; Creamy Coconut Chicken

If there’s one thing you can take control of and live life for the better it’s having a healthy diet. I don’t mean curly kale shakes. Although those green disgusting looking shakes, I’m sure, are wonderful for you, but you just need a well balanced, healthy meal!

If there’s one condition that these healthy recipes must have, it’s that they must be quick! I don’t have time after a long, hard days work of teaching with countless children sucking every bit of energy out of me to be slaving over a hot stove.

So here is one example of a quick, healthy eating recipe that doesn’t only make me happy at the end of a stressful working day, but also makes my husband very happy! Winner!

It’s called: Creamy Coconut Chicken

What you need:

  • Chicken breasts (or thighs if you want a tastier bit of chicken!)
  • Coconut oil
  • Lime
  • Coconut cream (organic)
  • A red fresh Chilli
  • Chicken Stock
  • Coriander
  • Brown rice

Now as you can see I also go for as few ingredients as possible – easy peasy!

One other thing; I understand it’s more expensive but try to get organic everything!
Filling your body with addictive additives, E numbers etc.. can’t be good, right?!

I like to tell myself; as long as it’s organic and free from disgusting E numbers, then my body is going to be much happier and not crave those sugary additives; an all-round healthier way to live. Body is a temple and all that…

Back to the recipe…

Really simply…

  1. Fry up the chicken in a pan in coconut oil until brown all over.
  2. Take out the chicken and place on a plate.
  3. In the pan, fry up the chopped up fresh chilli, add in the chicken stock, juice from the lime. Bring to the boil and then simmer.
  4. Add in the coconut milk and simmer for about another 5 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken back in and cook for another 5-10 minutes.
  6. Add in some chopped coriander.
  7. Serve up with some brown rice and enjoy!
