    This Seared Coconut-Lime Chicken with Snap Pea Slaw is an amazing recipe to add to your repertoire. It’s full of Asian ingredients like coconut cream, cilantro, lime and my all time favorite oil to cook with – sesame oil. Sesame oil is made from sesame seeds and it has a very distinctive nutty taste. It smells amazing when you cook with it too!

    To make this, first assemble the pea slaw in a large salad bowl. Sear seasoned chicken in a pan and when you have transferred the chicken to plates, make a sauce with coconut cream and lime juice. The chicken juices left in the pan will add to the flavor of the sauce. At the end spoon the slaw onto the cooked chicken and enjoy!
