Ingredients

Directions

  1. Using a rolling pin, pound the chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper until they are of uniform thickness. Heat the oil and garlic and pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers and the garlic browns. (Don't burn the garlic.)
  2. Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Add the salt, pepper, coconut milk, and lime zest and juice.
  3. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 3 minutes longer or until the chicken is fork-tender. Remove the chicken to a platter and keep warm.
  4. Increase heat to high and boil the sauce until thickened or syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk in the fish sauce and pour the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with cilantro.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
