Mediterranean-Style Chicken With Coconut Dill Sauce Recipe

Fresh herbs and citrus with plenty of olive oil give this chicken a Mediterranean flavor, and a creamy dill sauce tops off all that crispy grilled flavor with a tasty contrast.

You can make the sauce with heavy cream to take advantage of all the good fats in grass-fed dairy, or substitute coconut milk if you don’t tolerate dairy at all.

To save a little time while cooking, you could also make the sauce ahead of time and just refrigerate it until it’s ready to serve – then you’d also get the contrast of a chilled sauce on the hot chicken.

For a cold side dish, cucumber salad might be a good choice. Or if you’re in the mood for something hot, what about grilled kebabs with vegetables and lemon slices? And don’t forget a big glass of homemade lemonade on the side.
