Cook Time: 30 mins

Total Time: 45 mins

Servings: 4 servings


1 lb. chicken breast about 4 slices (½ inch thick)

2 tbsp. avocado oil or olive oil

¼ cup vegetable broth

½ medium onion

2 garlic cloves, minced

12 oz. jar of roasted peppers, divided

½ cup full-fat coconut milk or cream

½ cup shredded Parmesan

¼ cup chopped Basil

¼ tsp. red pepper flakes optional

1 tsp. paprika or to taste

½ tsp. salt or to taste

1 cup Basmati rice

2 cups water for rice


Puree 6 oz. of roasted pepper in a smoothie cup, or with a hand chopper, until smooth. Chop the remaining 6 oz. of peppers. Set aside.

Season the chicken with salt and paprika.

Add about 2 tablespoons of avocado oil to a large non-stick skillet. When it’s hot, add the chicken and fry for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until just cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet.

To the same skillet, add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes and then add the vegetable or chicken broth. Keep cooking until the liquid evaporates and the onions soften nicely.

Add the chopped and pureed peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 7-10 minutes, until it starts looking thicker, and the roasted peppers sweeten.

Reduce the heat to low. Add the coconut milk, Parmesan, and basil. Stir and bring to a gentle simmer.

Return the chicken to the skillet, cover it with the sauce, and simmer for 1 minute. Sprinkle some Parmesan on top. Serve.
