Coconut Lime Chicken (Paleo, Whole30 + Keto)

Thai food is one of the genres of food I really love and that always feels like comfort food to me! It used to be my go-to before I started eating Paleo, and it’s our favorite date night when we decide to eat out these days. I have to admit though, this Paleo and Whole30 friendly coconut lime chicken really takes me back to a trip to Thailand several years ago. It’s so flavorful, fresh and satisfying!

  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated on a microplane
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (plus more for topping)
  • 1/3 cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil (or coconut oil)
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1.5 cups full fat coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lime slices for topping (optional)
  1. Prep shallot, garlic, ginger and cilantro as noted. Juice limes and set aside.
  2. Place the chicken breasts between two pieces of parchment paper and pound them down to make them even in thickness. Sprinkle each side of the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add avocado oil.
  4. Once hot, add the chicken to the pan (you may have to cook the chicken in 2 batches depending on the size of your pan). Cook, without disturbing for 3-4 minutes, until a nice brown crust has formed. Flip and cook another 3-4 minutes on the other side, until the chicken is mostly cooked through.
  5. Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside. Lower the heat to medium.
  6. Add more oil if needed and add the garlic and shallot to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Add chicken stock, coconut milk, lime juice, ginger and cilantro to the pan. Stir to mix, scraping up any browned bits remaining in the pan from when you cooked your chicken.
  8. Add the chicken breasts back to the skillet with the sauce. Cover and turn heat down to low. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  9. Serve with vegetables, potatoes, rice or cauli rice. Spoon some sauce over everything for serving. Sprinkle with cilantro and garnish with lime slices (optional).
