Chicken in Coconut Milk with Lime LeavesFrom midgelet 5 years ago
- 1 13.5 ounce can coconut milk (divide in two parts) shopping list
- 1 tablespoon coconut cream Concentrate (optional) shopping list
- 1 large spanish onion, diced shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder shopping list
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander powder shopping list
- 1 teaspoon sea salt or Celtic salt shopping list
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, finely diced shopping list
- 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, finely diced shopping list
- 1 stalk fresh lemon grass or lemon balm * shopping list
- 3-4 fresh lime leaves * shopping list
- 3 skinless chicken breasts, cut in chunks shopping list
- 1 fennel bulb, finely sliced shopping list
How to make it
- . Use 1/2 of the coconut milk or enough to cover the bottom of the pan, add the coconut cream, as desired, and onion and cook for 3 minutes.
- Add the spices, including the lemon grass and lime leaves and cook for another minute or two.
- Now add the chicken and the remainder of the coconut milk, cover well, and cook for about 20 minutes.
- Start out at high heat, then lower to medium-low heat or a “comfortable bubble.”
- Add the sliced fennel bulb, cover again and cook for another five minutes.
- The fennel should still be a little “al dente,” or chewy, not totally soft.
- *Lemon grass and lime leaves can be found in Asian specialty stores
- However, if you can’t find any, cut some strips of a fresh lime peel and finely chop (lime zest).
- Most stores have dried lemongrass.
- It won’t be the same, but will be close.
- What you really want to get is the combination of the delicate sourness of lime leaves and lemon grass and the mellowness of coconut milk.
- Fresh lemon balm, an herb that’s often locally grown, has almost the same flavor as lemon grass.
- Cut lemon grass in half to fit the pot, and remove it before serving.
- Serve over a bed of steamed asparagus (or use drained canned ones) or steamed spinach or wild rice with a crisp green salad.
