Paleo Keto Chicken With An Easy Quick Spicy Hot Sauce Coating
This Easy Peri Peri Sauce Chicken has a yogurt tasting creamy sauce without having to add any yogurt. The chicken is fully cooked by pan frying, then the sauce is prepared at the end to coat the chicken in. The sauce combines chili, apple cider vinegar and coconut milk.
The chicken is brined first in salt and water. This keeps the chicken juicy and tender during and after cooking. To brine the chicken mix enough water to cover the chicken with about half a cup salt. Mix and add the chicken in, then cover the container and leave in the fridge for about 4 hours or more. You can skip the brine if you prefer, but once you try it, you’ll taste the difference it brings to the texture of your chicken.
Easy Recipe Adaptations
You can easily substitute the apple cider vinegar with lemon juice in this recipe. You can also reduce or add more chili based on how you prefer your chicken.
