Coconut Citrus Chicken
Amanda shares this yummy crock-pot creation:
I enjoy reading and finding recipes to make – but I sometimes end up doing a little combination of sorts when I find a few good ones I like. This one for example 😉
NOTE: I opt for organic when possible; I am chicken thigh kind of girl; I usually sear my chicken before placing in crock-pot.
Fresh squeezed citrus of lemon, lime, and oranges; garlic and I opted for thyme
4 hours minimum (I like to do mine overnight)
Bring marinated chicken to room temperature and then sear in a hot skillet w/ coconut oil.
Place seared chicken in crock-pot
1/2 cup to 1 cup of organic OJ or fresh squeezed
Juice of 2 lemons and limes
More fresh thyme
4 slices of grass-fed butter
Fresh lemons or oranges on top
Cook on low for 3-4 hours (depends on your crock-pot and thickness of chicken)
Add 1/2 cup canned coconut milk
Cook on high for about an hour – till it boils
Then back to low until chicken is done
I served with shavings of coconut on top
TIP: This broth is amazing! So save it and then you can turn your leftovers in to a yummy soup.
