Yield

Serves 4

Ingredients

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 lime
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons curry powder
1½ teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1½ teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1. Using a meat tenderizer, pound chicken breasts between sheets of wax paper until ⅛-inch thick.
  2. Zest lime into a large bowl; slice lime into wedges and set aside.
  3. Add oil, coconut milk, soy sauce, sugar, curry, coriander, cumin, and salt to zest and whisk to combine. Add chicken and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Remove chicken, reserving marinade. Using a hot sauté pan, grill pan, or cast-iron skillet, brown chicken on both sides. Chicken should register 165 degrees Fahrenheit using an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast.
  5. Meanwhile, pour reserved marinade into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring to prevent burning.
  6. Serve sauce over chicken with cilantro and reserved lime wedges.
