lime & ginger chicken with coconut rice


I’d be lying if I didn’t say this was one of the better meals I’ve made in a long, long time! I love coconut rice, and combined with the sweet & tart of the lime sauce it was perfection! I can’t wait until lunch time tomorrow to have leftovers!

Lime & Ginger Chicken with Coconut Rice

Marinade
Juice of 1 large lime
2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
3 large skinless, boneless chicken breast

Sauce
1 tbsp canola oil
1 lime
2 tbsp liquid honey
1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
Pinch of salt & black pepper
2 green onions, sliced
2 small bell peppers, thinly sliced
4 Shanghai bok choy (or baby bok choy)

Cut chicken into thin slices and place in a small bowl or shallow dish. Pour in lime juice, ginger and garlic. Toss to coat & refrigerate for 20 minutes.

After meat has marinated, heat oil in pan or wok. Cook chicken and remaining marinade until chicken is no longer pink (about 3 minutes).

Meanwhile, squeeze juice from half a lime into a small bowl. Stir in honey, ginger, salt and pepper.

When chicken is no longer pink, throw in bok choy and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until bok choy is slightly wilted. Pour honey mixture overtop. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.

Serve and sprinkle with green onions.

As for the coconut rice, easy. Just follow this recipe!

    Sounds delicious!

  2. I love the presentation. Do your boys eat it? I am having a heck of a time getting N to eat her dinner. Ugh!

    • They ate the rice and the chicken and left all the veggies. They’re pretty particular about cooked veggies. They’ll eat anything that stays firm: carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, etc. As soon as it’s something that softens like bell pepper or mushrooms, they poo-poo it immediately even though they love them raw.

      As for the dinner part, it’s hit and miss. They both eat so much during the day at daycare that more times than not dinner’s a total miss.

      • N snacks a lot during the day – dinner is gong show most nights. Mind you, we don’t eat dinner together yet so that might be an issue. I’m not ready to give up my quiet adult evening dinners just yet! ;)
