Coconut Chicken Salad
Ingredients
  • 12  ounces  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves and/or thighs
  • 1 14  ounce can  unsweetened light coconut milk
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1/4  cup  thinly sliced red onion or Vidalia onion
  • 2  tablespoons  lime juice
  • 2  Thai red chile peppers, seeded, if desired, and finely chopped
  • 1  cup  shredded lettuce
  • 1/2  cup  coconut chips, toasted
  •  Salt and ground black pepper
  •  Naan Indian flat bread or 3-inch rounds Armenian cracker bead
Directions

1. In a large skillet place chicken, coconut milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 12 to 14 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and an instant-read thermometer registers 170 degree F for breast or 180 degree F for thighs. Drain well; discard milk mixture. Cool chicken slightly; cut into bite-size pieces.

2. In a medium bowl combine chicken pieces, onion, lime juice, and Thai peppers. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Before serving gently stir shredded lettuce and half of the toasted coconut chips into the chicken mixture. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Sprinkle with remaining coconut chips. Serve with naan Indian flat bread or Armenian cracker bread. Makes 4 servings.
