Instructions
  1. Trim fat from chicken breasts. Starting on thick side of the breasts slice the chicken breasts almost in half, then open each like a book.
  2. Place each open breast between two pieces of plastic wrap, wax paper or inside a large, open, Ziploc bag.
  3. Using a small heavy pan, or a mallet and smooth the meat. Lightly pound out each breast into even thickness.
  4. In a separate bowl to make the marinade, mix all the remaining ingredients except fresh coriander and limes.
  5. Add chicken and marinade to a large bowl or ziploc bag and chill in the refrigerator for up to two hours.
  6. Your chicken doesn’t take long to cook so you can use this time to get your dishes prepped and ready.
  7. Once you are ready to cook the chicken, remove each breast from the marinade.
  8. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a rolling boil. Boil continuously for at least 2 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn.
  9. In a large frying pan, heat a splash of coconut oil over high heat.
  10. Cook the chicken in batches to prevent over crowding the pan.
  11. Place the breasts in the hot pan and cook without turning for a couple minutes.
  12. Flip the breasts over and cook until the other side is golden, it shouldn’t take long depending on the thickness of your chicken.
  13. Place cooked breasts on a plate in a warm oven while cooking the remaining chicken.
  14. Sprinkle with fresh lime juice and coriander. Serve with sauce on the side.
  15. Enjoy!
