Recipe: Coco-Nutty Chicken

By Tara Ballard

I am always searching for new ways to prepare chicken. I came up with this Thai-inspired goodie on a recent trip. It’s quick, easy and most importantly, tasty!!

You can adjust most ingredients to your liking, but here is what I did:


  • 1 lb chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 ½ cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tbs minced ginger
  • 1 or 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup low-sodium, organic chicken broth**
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk**
  • 1 tbs unsweetened organic peanut butter
  • a grind or two of sea salt


  • Brown the chicken, mushrooms, onion, ginger and garlic in a large pan.
  • Add the liquid ingredients and peanut butter, and simmer, covered, on medium for 15 minutes or so (or until the chicken is done).
  • **You can add more or less of the liquid ingredients depending on how much additional “sauce” you want.
  • Eat over broccoli and/or spinach. Makes 3 servings. Bon Appetit!

Hope you enjoy! Xoxo, Tara
