Mexican/ Lime/ Coconut Chicken & Pasta

This is another crock pot chicken recipe. Very easy and can be prepared the night before. The list of ingredients are below, but I definitely think it could be modified.

1 Whole Chicken
Chopped Sun Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil about ¼ cup
Diced Garlic Cloves – about 20
1 cup tomatillo salsa or “Salsa Verde”
¼ cup onion

Marinade:
½ cup lime juice
Garlic Powder ½ tsp
Sea Salt
Pepper
¼ cup bbq sauce (this was a Brad add)
¼ cup Asian Sesame dressing (“ “ , thought I was going to be really made when I tasted it, but honestly it was really good!)

Brad injected the chicken right before putting in the crock pot. Cook on low about 4-5 hours.

Served with protein pasta & light sauce

Sauce:
1 can light coconut milk
2 T brown sugar
2 T Soy Sauce
About 1 ½ cups chicken juice moved from crock pot (ok if tomatoes, onions are moved)
¼ - ½ cup flour

Mix all ingredients except flour. Sift in flour slowly till combined. Pour sauce over pasta and chicken. We topped with more garlic (yes I know!) and a bit of Parmesan cheese.

Meal cost - $9-10, 5- 6 servings
