GFCFSF Lime Chicken and Rice

I neglected to take a picture of this because it didn't look all that interesting to me, but my daughter ate it up and said she loved it! (Hubbie and I liked it too; son doesn't get into chicken but ate the rice!) I can't quite remember what all I did to make this -- it was one of those "use whatever I can find in the fridge" kind of spontaneous recipes, but I will post it here in case it helps anybody!!!

In a skillet, I drizzled some olive oil. Then I sauteed a bit of minced garlic. Into the skillet, I cut pieces of skinless, boneless chicken. Then I added the following to the chicken as a sauce and did a little stir-fry-type action:

- agave nectar
- juice from a lime
- toasted sesame oil
- honey mustard
- salt

I served the chicken on top of rice made like this:

Put 1 cup GF chicken broth (I use Pacific brand), 1 cup coconut milk, juice from 1/2 lime, some minced garlic, salt, and 2 cups of water into a shallow pot (4 cups liquid). Bring to a boil. Add 2 cups of rice (rinsed first) and bring to a boil again. Switch to low, cover tight, and cook for 20 minutes.

Cutting chicken on a cutting board with a knife freaks me out. I feel like I'm getting raw chicken under my fingernails and...I don't know. It's just gross! So my new technique is to just use kitchen scissors and cut chunks off the chicken into the pot.
