    Recipe Notes

    Optionally you could de-glaze the pan to make a gravy or sauce after removing the finished chicken. Pour 1/2 cup of either broth, water or coconut milk into the hot pan and immediately scrape the bottom all around to remove cooked on yumminess. Stir constantly until a nice gravy of your desired consistency has formed. Use this to pour over the chicken and or your side dishes!
