4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz. each)
Salt and pepper
1 13.5-oz. can unsweetened coconut milk
1 1/2 cups light mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 10-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
1 11-oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
1/2 cup packed shredded coconut, toasted
How to Make It
Place chicken in a skillet and season with salt and pepper. Pour in coconut milk and bring to a boil over high heat. (Add water, if necessary, to cover chicken.) Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, until chicken is opaque and firm, 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and let cool. Discard coconut milk. When cool enough to handle, shred chicken into small pieces using your fingers.
Blend mayonnaise with sour cream in a medium bowl. Stir in lime juice, relish and celery. Add chicken, pineapple, oranges and peanuts. Season with salt and pepper. Gently fold to blend and coat ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle with coconut just before serving.
This was good..different, but good. Great taste between the ingredients. The only thing I didn't like was the toasted coconut you add in the end.. it added texture with no particular taste. I'm not adding that next time I make it. This tasted even better as leftovers the next day, since it was very well refrigerated :)
