Health Highlights


681 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (or thighs)
1 tbsp Chili powder
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Coriander, ground
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Sea Salt
1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
2 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (sliced)
1 1/2 cup Chicken broth (stock)
1/4 cup Lime juice (fresh) (freshly squeezed)
1 tbsp Arrowroot flour
1 tbsp Water
1/2 cup Coconut cream (or full fat coconut milk)


Begin by heating a large skillet to medium high heat. Use a non-stick spray or olive oil to lightly grease the pan.

In a small bowl, mix together all spices. Rub each chicken breast on both sides with rub. Place each piece of chicken on to the pan, and sear for 1-2 minutes per side (inside will be raw).

Bring chicken to the slow cooker, top with chicken broth and lime juice. Cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or until chicken is very tender. Mix together arrowroot with water, and add to the chicken broth mixture. Also add in coconut cream. Cook on low for another 15-20 minutes until mixture is thickened and creamy.

Serve hot on top of vegetable noodles, rice, or pasta.
