This recipe features a delicious sauce made with heart-healthy grapefruit juice -- intensely flavorful, but very low in fat. Wonderful over Creamy Coconut Rice.

I rearranged a few things to make this more eye appealing. Chicken thighs were browned in a little bit of grape seed oil and I did not cut them into bite-size pieces. Sauteed shallote, scraping up the fond on the bottom of the pan and whisked in the cornstarch and broth, not water and freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Chicken was arranged on a platter and the sauce poured over it. Garnished with fresh cilantro and toasted walnuts. Seasoned with grey salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
