One-Skillet Asian Peanut Lime & Cilantro Ground Chicken a.k..a You’re Going To Go (pea)NUTS For This Recipe!

Simply put… YOU WANT & NEED THIS in your life!

You can use it in wraps, lettuce, sandwiches, buns (sloppy joe style), bowls, salads or devour it as is!

As always, I used coconut aminos instead of soy sauce. I honestly don’t remember the last time I used soy sauce, TBH & with reason!  Coconut aminos is a much healthier, more nutritious alternative & it packs way less sodium, tons of amino acids, boosts heart health & has tons of digestive health benefits!

Before we get into the recipe, let me just tell you that I give you two options for how to heat your skillet: coconut oil cooking spray or sesame oil. Now, while I do freaking adore my coconut oil cooking spray, with this recipe, I am 100% SERIOUS when I say that you NEED the sesame oil. It really does add so much more flavour to the recipe & gives it that Asian kick!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Coconut oil cooking spray OR 1 tbsp. organic toasted sesame oil
  • 2 small white onions or 1 medium, cubed
  • 1 package extra-lean ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut aminos
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime (or lemon)
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha
  • Sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 5 green onions
  • 1/2 cup organic Valencia or jungle peanuts

TO MAKE:

  • Heat a skillet over medium-high heat & spray with coconut oil OR add 1 tbsp. sesame oil.
  • Once heated, add the onion & sauté until browned, translucent & fragrant.

  • Lower the heat. Remove the skillet from the stove & add the chicken, cilantro, coconut aminos, lime, spices, garlic & Sriracha.

  • Increase heat to medium-high & sauté the chicken with the rest of the ingredients until no longer pink & almost cooked through. You’ll know it’s nearly done once the liquids are absorbed!
  • Throw in the green onion & peanuts & cook for another 3 minutes, until combined & peanuts are lightly toasted.
  • Remove from the heat & ENJOY!
