I think I’ve mentioned this a few times, but it might be worth repeating since today’s recipe is a delicious, yet odd combination of ingredients. When I put together a recipe to share, it almost always involves me raiding the fridge, freezer or pantry and seeing what we already have on hand. I am going to go ahead and assume that you don’t like extra trips to the grocery store either and the more I can make with what I already have, the happier I am.

Enter, today’s creamy coconut chicken with broccoli and bacon. It’s a spin-off from last winter’s creamy spinach and bacon spaghetti squash recipe, minus the spaghetti squash and spinach. Instead, I added chicken and broccoli and cooked it in a cast iron skillet instead of in the oven.

Overall, this one was a hit. It’s quite a bit different than the spaghetti squash recipe but still has that wonderful creamy coconut sauce.

Before we dive into the recipe, I thought it might be worth mentioning: we had this about two days after I put it together and it was even better than when I tasted it right outta the pan. There’s something about letting the flavors sit together that really adds a little something 🙂
