Looking for a new dinner or lunch recipe that is going to spice things up a whole lot?!

Well I have you covered guys!! With this new coconut milk chicken and rice bowl. It is our family’s latest craze and a dish that we all crave. Plus it is ready in less than 30 minutes and you only dirty one pot.. What could be better?

This dish is overflowing with flavor and it is such a delicious way to eat chicken compared to anything we are used to. The creaminess of coconut milk mixed with bone broth and ginger and garlic and it is so addicting. I love serving this meal over rice to make it a whole meal and with some extra sourdough if we have too. You can also serve with cauliflower rice or something else to make it whole30 if you need.

I have a feeling you guys will love this recipe as much as we do. I can’t wait to hear what you think!
