Serves: 4
Hands-On Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/4 cup organic almond butter or peanut butter (found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk (found at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp coconut balsamic vinegar (found at the Olympia Olive Oil store)
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • ½ tbsp lemon grass stir-fry paste (found at World Market)
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp Braggs Branch Liquid Aminos Soy Sauce Alternative (found at The Vitamin Shoppe)
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 12 oz green beans, trimmed (or other combination of veggies of your choice)
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2-inch chunks (NOTE: Make sure to dice potatoes no larger than directed, as they should cook through in the same amount 
of time as the chicken.)
  • 1 red onion, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond butter, milk, vinegars, 2 tbsp cilantro, honey, lime juice, lemon grass paste, ginger, Braggs soy sauce, pepper flakes and garlic. Set aside.
  3. Cut 4 12 x 16-inch pieces of foil and mist with cooking spray. Divide green beans, potatoes and onion evenly into the center of each piece of foil. Divide chicken and peanut butter mixture between foil pieces, over top vegetables. Bring the short edges of the foil together, then fold inward a few times along each long edge to seal.
  4. Place foil packets directly on the grill or on a large, rimmed baking sheet in the oven. Grill or bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender. (NOTE: Carefully open a single packet to check, then reseal if needed.) Transfer contents of packets to serving bowls and garnish with additional cilantro.
