  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts If breasts are thick, filet them (slice lengthwise).
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tbsp Truvia
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 1 small bunch cilantro, chopped


  • Whisk together coconut oil, lime zest, cumin, soy sauce, salt, Truvia, curry powder, coconut milk and lime juice.
  • Place chicken in gallon size freezer bag, or 8x8 glass dish and pour marinade over top.
  • Marinate at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day.
  • Preheat grill 400-500 degrees.  Grill chicken 5 minutes per side or until done. 
  • Garnish with lime slices, cilantro and jalapeno peppers. 


I typically buy 1 package of chicken breasts and fillet them for thinner cuts. Usually 3 breasts are in a package, so this will give me 6 pieces of meat.
Truvia can be substituted with 3 Tbsp sugar, or 3 Tbsp honey.
