Curried Chicken & Garlic Golden Rice Recipe: Directions

Step 1

1/4 onion, thinly sliced, should be placed in a medium bowl. Season with salt after adding the lime juice. Crush the onions with the back of a spoon on the edge of your mixing bowl. (This will allow them to pickle faster.) Set aside the leftover onion, which has been chopped.

Step 2

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Cook, stirring regularly, until the onion is tender, about 6 minutes. Cook for 1 minute further after adding half the garlic, half the ginger, and 1 tablespoon of the curry powder, until aromatic. Bring the coconut milk to a simmer before adding the rice. Bring to a low simmer, cover, and cook for 15 to 17 minutes, or until rice is cooked. When the rice is done, fold in the spinach until it has wilted.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, add yogurt, remaining garlic, ginger, curry powder, and cayenne pepper, if using. Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and spread the yogurt mixture over frozen chicken breasts with a tiny spatula or pastry brush.

Step 4

Heat the remaining oil in a 10″ or 12″ high-sided skillet over medium heat. Sear the chicken for 10 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°. Remove from the fire and let aside for 5 minutes before slicing. Divide the rice and chicken into four bowls, then top with the lime-pickled onions. Before serving, garnish with cilantro. REF.
