Servings 4 servings


  • 2 cups canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 cups almond flour or almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 large lemons juiced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • Aluminum foil


  • In a shallow bowl, place coconut milk. In a medium bowl, add next 7 ingredients (almond flour through parsley); stir to combine.
  • Coat each chicken breast half with coconut milk then dredge in almond flour mixture, covering completely. Place on a plate and set aside to rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH. Brush grill grate with the 4 tablespoons of coconut oil.
  • Using aluminum foil wrap, make 4 packets by folding a square of foil in half, crimping the two side edges and leaving the tops open. Place a coated chicken breast half inside each packet then fold the top to seal. Place chicken packets on the grill; cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side then remove from grill and set aside to cool slightly before opening the packets.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, toss together broccoli florets, olive oil, salt and pepper, coating broccoli well. Transfer broccoli to a grill plate/basket and cook on grill for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender-crisp.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Add “baked” sweet potatoes (no need to heat the oven) just wash, but do not dry, medium-sized sweet potatoes and place them in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours or until tender.
