Lately it seems that if a recipe has cilantro in it, I must make it, and devour it. I’m not even kidding. As I’ve been writing up recipe posts for you guys I keep coming across cilantro, cilantro, and more cilantro! I’m going to have to take a break from it soon and mix things up a bit more or I’m going to have to rename the blog, “The Cilantro Diaries.” You will find other recipes with a similar flavor profile (here and here), but I promise you they are SO good that it’s worth trying them all! I can’t get enough, and I’m hoping you feel the same (at least for now)! My latest creation is this Pan-Seared Chicken with Creamy Coconut Cilantro Lime Sauce.
It sounds like the perfect summer meal, right? While I agree that this would definitely make a great meal in the summer, I made this a couple nights ago when it was around 20 degrees outside, and it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!! Not a single bite was leftover! Who says coconut and lime must be reserved for hot weather meals? I totally disagree.
The sauce is really unique! It’s sweet and tangy with just a little hint of spice that makes it different than most other cilantro-lime combinations I’ve tried, or made! The best part is that this recipe is really quick and really easy. Just pick up a few things next time you go grocery shopping and whip this up in no time at all! It is a perfect week night meal!
If I had known I could make food this good so quickly, I probably would have taught myself to cook a lot sooner than I did. So, whether you’re a beginner in the kitchen, or a seasoned pro, you can cook this! And it will taste good! Trust me, the creamy coconut cilantro lime sauce is worth trying! I love to pair it with Creamy Coconut Rice for even more coconut flavor! If you attempt this recipe, leave me a comment and let me know how it goes!
