Remove from heat.
  6. 6. Return chicken to the skillet and place the skillet in preheated oven and bake 25 minutes, until cooked through, and then return the skillet to the stovetop.
  7. 7. Remove the chicken to dinner plates. Whisk the arrowroot and mustard into the coconut milk and then add to the skillet.  Whisk while bringing to a boil for 2-3 minutes until thickened.  Serve the veggies and sauce with the chicken and enjoy.
