Citrus Garlic Chicken with Coconut Lime Rice



Coconut Oil is all the rage lately.  So many people have tried it, and are posting great looking recipes with it.  I must admit, I am not a fan of coconut.  But this oil has peaked my curiosity.  So when Jen from Kelapo contacted me, I was super excited to see what all the hype was about.  When it arrive the first thing I had to do was smell it.  It smelled exactly like what I thought it would...Coconut Heaven!  I could just sit with that jar next to me all day, taking sniffs every minute or so.  It is like vacation in a jar!

I have tried a couple things with it, but this rice was so good.  The chicken would have been really good as well, but it needed more citrus.  I will post the recipe as I made it.  But I think if you used the juice of the fruit just before serving, it would brighten it up and give it great flavor.  Or even marinate the chicken in some citrus and coconut oil before cooking.  This is a great dinner for fall or winter, when you are wishing you were on a tropical vacation!

coconut oil is all the rage lately. I was literally at the store with my husband and I was looking at a jar contemplating if I should buy some to see what it was like lol. Your chicken and rice sound and look fantastic. Maybe I need to jump on the coconut wagon. :)

Love the flavors happening here. Sri Lankans use a lot of coconut oil. I haven't really tried to use it here in the States. Now I must give it a go.

We used coconut oil for the first time this spring/summer. It made everything taste so tropical! I'm with you, I'm not a huge fan of coconut, but for some reason this oil isn't over powering. This dinner sounds delicious! I know I would enjoy this one.
