 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    boneless -- skinless chicken
                         breast halves, tenderloins separated
                         Salt
    1      tablespoon    Oriental sesame oil
                         Half a lime or lemon -- seeds removed
      1/3  cup           coconut milk
    1      small         scallion (green onion) -- trimmed and finely
                         sliced
      1/4  cup           chopped cilantro
                         Dried red pepper flakes
 
 Between sheets of plastic wrap pound the thicker side of the breast to make it 
 overall more even in
 thickness and season lightly with salt. 
 
 Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over moderate heat. Add the chicken breasts an
 d tenderloins. Saute
 the chicken without disturbing the pieces for 4 to 5 minutes. You'll know to tu
 rn the chicken over
 when the top looks opaque (tenderloins may take only 2 to 3 minutes per side). 
 Turn the chicken
 over to the other side and saute, undisturbed again for another 4 to 5 minutes 
 or until the interior is
 cooked through. 
 
 Remove the chicken to a plate and discard the fat from the skillet. Squeeze the
  juice from the lime
 into the skillet and scrape up any coagulated juices into the juice; add the co
 conut milk, bring it to a
 simmer. Remove the skillet from the heat and whisk in the scallions and cilantr
 o; season to taste
 with salt and dried red pepper flakes
