Slicing chicken into bite-sized pieces before cooking allows for even browning on all sides, which means more flavor! The chicken is cooked in coconut oil for a rich aroma with the added benefits of healthy fats.
While the chicken is cooking, stir together ingredients for the creamy coconut almond sauce. Turmeric adds anti-inflammatory properties and a hint of exotic flavor while mineral- and probiotic-rich apple cider vinegar adds a yummy tanginess. Pour about ⅓ cup of the sauce over the chicken and cook an additional 5 minutes to seal in the nutty flavor.
Tip: This sauce doubles as a salad dressing and can also be used as a marinade for chicken before grilling.
