Lean chicken breasts are cooked in a creamy coconut milk sauce seasoned with lime and cilantro, then served over whole wheat pasta.
Cook pasta according to package directions, except omit any salt called for on package. Drain pasta; set aside.
Meanwhile, in an extra-large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots, garlic, and crushed red pepper; cook 30 seconds. Sprinkle chicken breast strips with black pepper; add to skillet. Cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a plate; cover with foil and keep warm.
Whisk the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and the lime juice into the skillet, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits from bottom of the skillet. Add cooked pasta; toss to coat. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut milk, yogurt, and lime peel; add to the skillet. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup of the snipped cilantro and the cooked chicken. Heat through. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup snipped cilantro. If desired, garnish with cilantro sprigs and/or lime wedges.
I did like this recipe but I did find it a bit dry.
