  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, patted dry
  • 1 medium onion, diced or grated
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 (15oz) can coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups rice, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened, finely shredded coconut
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 2 limes
  • cilantro for garnish
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • olive oil


  1. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in an oven-safe Dutch oven or pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken and brown the chicken in oil for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan. Add onion, and ginger to the pan. Heat until tender and translucent.
  2. Pour coconut milk and broth into the pan and stir to scrape up any browned bits. Add rice and stir to coat. Nestle the chicken into the rice mixture and sprinkle with coconut. Add a tight fitting lit to the pan.
