  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1 chayote squash, cut into ½″ cubes (or yellow squash)

  1. Combine chicken, lime juice, and 1 tbsp. curry powder in a large bowl, and toss to combine; refrigerate for at least 4 hours or up to overnight.
  2. Heat oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, and working in batches, add to pot, and cook, stirring, until golden brown all over, about 8 minutes. Put chicken aside in a bowl.
