Directions

  1. Using a rolling pin, pound the chicken between 2 sheets of wax paper until they are of uniform thickness.
  2. Heat the oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers and the garlic browns. (Don't burn the garlic.) Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden, 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Add the salt, pepper, coconut milk, and lime zest and juice. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 3 minutes longer or until the chicken is fork-tender.
  4. Remove the chicken to a platter and keep warm. Increase heat to high and boil the sauce until thickened or syrupy, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Whisk in the fish sauce and pour the sauce over the chicken. Garnish with cilantro.
