Caribbean Coconut Chicken

This is a recipe from April's sister-in-law, and our friend Bethany Comerford. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe with us!

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cubed

1 tsp vegetable oil

1 1/2 onions, chopped

1 red bell pepper

1 green bell pepper

1 tbsp chopped roasted garlic

1 (14 oz) can coconut milk

salt and pepper to taste

1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes (I don't use these)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In large skillet, fry chicken in vegetable oil until chicken just begins to turn brown. Stir in onions and bell peppers. Saute until onions are translucent. Stir in garlic and coconut milk. Let mixture cook 5-8 minutes before removing from heat. Season with salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Transfer mixture to 9x13 baking dish and bake for 45 minutes or until vegetables cook down and chicken is tender. Serve over rice.

I LOOOOVE this stuff! I love the coconut flavor!:)

** WW PPVS: Mine came to 7 PPVs for 1/4 of the recipe (I used 1 lb. of chicken breasts, olive oil and LITE coconut milk). Remember to add PPVs for rice also. (Jamie)

Honey Garlic Chicken Slow Cooker Recipe

The Ingredients.
serves 4

1 1/2 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (4 or one thigh per family member)
3 garlic cloves, smashed and chopped
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 cup soy sauce (La Choy or Tamari wheat-free are gluten free)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup honey
1 Tbsp Franks hot sauce

The Directions.

Use a 4-quart slow cooker (if using a 6-quart, this will cook faster. Check after 3 hours on high, 5 hours on low).
Put the chicken into your cooker. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, then pour evenly over the top.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3-4 (I'd go with low---).
**WW PPVs: 6 PPVs using lite/low-sodium soy sauce and chicken breasts, rather than thighs. Add additional PPVs if serving over rice.(Jamie)
