- Mix the lime juice with the honey and the soy sauce or coconut aminos - set aside. Core, seed, and thinly slice bell peppers. Cut chicken across the grain into 3/4 inch-wide slices.
- Heat 1/2 Tablespoon of the coconut oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat.
- Add the bell pepper and cook until slightly soft, about 2 minutes - transfer to a plate.
- Add the remaining 1/2 Tablespoon of coconut oil to the pan. Add the shallots and cook until brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- Add the chicken and cook until down all the way through, 3-4 minutes. About half way through cooking, I recommend pouring any liquids or fat off into a bowl to allow the chicken to brown rather than stew.
- When the chicken finishes cooking, return the bell pepper to the pan and stir in the lime juice mixture, basil, and walnuts. Cook for about 1 minutes and serve in four bowls over the torn kale leaves or other greens.
