Recipe: "Feel Better Chicken"

I made this for supper tonight.  We both enjoyed it quite a lot.  :D

"Feel Better Chicken"

blob of coconut milk (about 2 tablespoons)
lime juice (about 1/2 teaspoon)
white pepper
fine sea salt
2 thin-sliced chicken breasts


Turn on Foreman grill.

Put a blob of coconut milk in a small dish. Add lime juice and taste. I added about 1/2 teaspoon. Grind in some white pepper and sea salt. Taste to see how the flavors balance. It should be creamy, slightly sweet, and a little tangy.

Brush the coconut mixture over both sides of the chicken breasts.

Put the chicken breasts on the Foreman grill and cook for 5 minutes.


Inspiration and title for the recipe came from the song "Coconut."
You put the lime in the coconut, you drink 'em both together
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better
Put the lime in the coconut, drink 'em both up
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning

-- Harry Nilsson

Coconut milk is a thick creamy substance made from grated coconut meat. It has many health benefits, and its texture makes an excellent base for cooking things.

It is fairly important to use white pepper and white sea salt in this recipe. Switching to black pepper or mineral salt would probably taste okay, but many people dislike seeing dark specks on very light-colored food.

Serve with a brightly colored vegetable for contrast, such as peas or carrots.
