Pour in the coconut cream and lemon juice, stir to combine, and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. You can adjust the consistency of the mixture to your liking by adding water if desired.
Once the mixture is simmering, add chicken pieces along with any hard vegetables such as carrots or pumpkin, if desired. Turn heat down to low, and return to a simmer.
Continue simmering all ingredients for 10-15 minutes if you are using chicken breasts, or 15-20 minutes if you are using chicken thighs and any hard vegetables. Add soft vegetables such as cauliflower florets in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.
