Expert Tips

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts can be substituted for the chicken thighs.
  • This recipe also works well with shrimp instead of chicken--just add them in a little later in the cooking process, after the peas, but a couple of minutes before the lime juice.
  • Cooking Gluten Free? Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
