  3. Add the Grace Coconut Milk and chicken stock and allow to reduce for 10 minutes.
  4. Arrange the flattened chicken breasts in the reduced coconut milk mixture.  Bring the liquid to just under a simmer over direct heat; reduce the flame, cover and cook for 8 minutes on each side or until cooked through and the liquid is reduced by two-thirds.
  5. Strain the sauce through a fine mesh sieve and whisk in the butter, if used.
