Coconut Lime Curry Chicken with Coconut Brown Rice

This was a fun meal. We had some Thai food over the weekend that we enjoyed. :) I decided it would be fun to have some more. It went over well. It is nice to switch it up, and have something new. I guess my family gets new often. :)


1 1/2 C Brown Rice
1/2 Coconut milk
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tsp turmeric
1 T dried onions
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 1/2 C water

Chicken mixture
2 C cilantro chopped up
1 T olive oil
1 T coconut oil
2 T lime juice
3 T water
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp honey
1 tsp curry
1/2 C water
3/4 C coconut milk
1 lb chicken tenders
1 tsp chili garlic sauce *optional (gave it a little zip)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Pour all the ingredients for the rice in your pressure cooker, rice maker or pot. Cook the amount of time you normally do for your rice. (I cooked it in the pressure cooker for 17 min on hing pressure and let it sit while I prepared the rest of the meal)

2. Heat in a skillet oil, Cilantro, lime juice, water, honey and salt. Let it cook for about 3 min.

3. Then add the remaining ingredients. (water, 1/2 C coconut milk, curry, chicken and *optional chili garlic sauce. Let them cook together, stirring. Cut up the chicken tenders. When the chicken is all cooked turn to low, add another 1/4 C coconut milk and stir in, and let cook with lid on for 5-10 min. Salt and pepper to taste.

4. I mixed the rice with the chicken. (I didn't add a 1/2 C of the rice. It had enough without it.) You could just pour the chicken on top, it's your preference.

Enjoy! We did!
