Ginger Lime Chicken

4 skinless, boneless organic chicken breasts
3 limes, rinsed[2], zested and juiced
3 Tbsp grated fresh ginger root
1-2 Tbsp raw honey (omit if Advanced)
1 Tbsp & 1/4 c unsweetened flaked coconut
Ginger Lime Dip[3] recipe (optional)
Head of lettuce or spinach (optional)

1.)  In a glass bowl, mix lime juice, lime zest, 1 Tbsp coconut and grated ginger.  Add chicken breasts and toss to coat.  Let marinate for about 20 minutes in fridge, rotating once or twice.

2.)  Heat grill or skillet to Medium/Medium-High and grease with a little coconut oil.  Remove chicken from marinade and drizzle top side with honey.  Add to grill or skillet, honey side down, and grill for about 6 minutes.  Drizzle other side with honey and flip, grilling until cooked thru (about another 6-8 minutes, depending on thickness).  You should get a nice caramelization.

3.)  Plate the grilled chicken over a bed of greens and drizzle with Ginger Lime Sauce[4].  Sprinkle with flaked coconut and serve.  (Or eat as is.  We sometimes pair this dish with the Spicy Mango-Cucumber-Coconut Salad[5] for a light, refreshing lunch or dinner.)
