    From the Test Kitchen

    In this creamy vegetarian curry, the combination of our bold yellow curry paste, rich coconut milk, and vibrant pineapple creates the perfect balance of sweet and spicy flavors. The curry is served over a bed of white rice to soak up all the saucy bites and garnished with crispy onions for satisfying crunch.

    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    Carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a small pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 13 to 15 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

    2 Prepare the ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice into rings. Peel and small dice the shallot. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Cut the pineapple crosswise into 1-inch pieces. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; roughly chop. Quarter the lime.

    3 Cook the chicken

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
