Citrus Garlic Chicken with Coconut Lime Rice – Chicken dinner made with tons of citrus for a bright and fresh dinner. Plus rice cooked in coconut milk and toss with lime for the perfect side dish.
I love a good chicken dinner. And I think that most people do. It is just so darn easy to make. I rounded up 37 chicken recipes from the blog, so I could have them all in one place. Now I need to add this citrus garlic chicken to the list!
I have said this before, but my husband isn’t a huge fan of chicken. A piece of Honey Dijon Chicken isn’t his favorite. He would rather have more going on. Like Pineapple Chicken Teriyaki, that is more his speed.
But this Citrus Garlic Chicken is for me. I love lemon with chicken, it is just so bright and fresh! Plus the coconut lime rice on the side is perfect. The rice is cooked in part chicken stock part coconut milk, so it is super creamy and way better than just your average rice. Then lime juice and lime zest are added, so it gets even better!
The chicken is browned in a skillet, then you finish cooking it in a mixture of chicken stock on citrus. So it stays super moist, and the lemon and lime juice flavor the chicken. Great to make in the summer when citrus is all over, or in the winter when you want it to feel like summer!
The coconut lime rice would be great with just about anything. Serve this citrus garlic chicken with roasted green beans with sesame and garlic for a complete and easy dinner any night of the week.
You will have some leftover coconut milk – so here are a couple recipes you might want to try!
