Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Place 4 individual 8-oz ramekins or custard cups on cookie sheet. In medium bowl, mix sauce ingredients; set aside.

  • 3 In 10-inch skillet or wok, heat coconut oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil, adding garlic and gingerroot just before chicken is fully cooked.

Pour sauce into pan; heat until sauce starts to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in chicken.
