Coconut Lime Chicken *Lauren Perry*

this is super easy and very yummy! I make this for a lot of my friends who have babies. It isn't spicy (though you can make it spicy if you want), it is very flavorful and mild and always a hit.

2 cans of coconut milk
1 small can of diced green ortega chili's
1 tbs+ of lime juice
1-2 tbs of sugar
few good shakes of salt or garlic salt (adjust to taste)
fresh ground pepper to taste (like 1/4 tsp)
4 chicken breasts (bbq and slice in strips.... its best to bbq the chicken because you want the smokey bbq flavor)

Boil rice
-in a sauce pan, bring to medium heat 2 cans of coconut milk and green chili's. Then slowly add to simmer. Add sugar, salt, pepper and lime juice. Stir every 10 minutes or so for about 40 minutes (it will thicken...do NOT bring to boil)
-bbq chicken and slice. Add to your coconut lime sauce and let simmer a few minutes
adjust seasoning
in a bowl add rice and top with the chicken and sauce mixture
