 600 g chicken thigh fillets
 28 g coconut oil
 20 g butter
 1 whole lemon
 240 g double cream
 1 tsp oregano
 2 sprigs of basil
 Dash of paprika
 Dash of salt and pepper

1

Melt butter and coconut oil in a large skillet.

2

Dice the chicken then add to the skillet along with the salt, pepper and paprika. Cook on a medium heat until the chicken starts to turn slightly golden (should take just under 10 minutes). Whilst the chicken is cooking chop 2 slices off the lemon and put aside for serving, then squeeze the juice from the remainder of the lemon over the chicken.

3

Once the chicken is cooked add the double cream, oregano and basil and keep cooking on a medium heat. Keep skillet on a medium heat and cook for a few minutes until the cream starts to thicken, making sure you keep stirring the cream to prevent it sticking.

4

Now you're ready to serve. My personal favourite is to enjoy this dish over diced courgette cooked in butter, or you can enjoy with a side of rice.
