Brazilian  Coconut Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
3 tablespoons coconut or vegetable oil, divided
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
Juice from 1 fresh lemon
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley or cilantro
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Add cumin, cayenne pepper, turmeric, coriander, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a large mixing bowl. Add chicken to bowl and rub with the spice mixture so that the chicken is well coated.

Heat a large, nonstick skillet to medium on the stove top. Add chicken to pan and cook for 12-14 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking process. Remove chicken to a plate and cover with foil.

Add remaining oil to skillet. Add the onion and jalapeño and cook until the onion becomes fragrant and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 2 minutes more. Add tomatoes and lemon juice and cook for 5 more minutes. Stir in the coconut milk and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Add chicken back to pan and cook for 5 more minutes. Garnish with parsley or cilantro before serving.
