Crispy Curry Chicken & Roasted Vegetables with Coconut Rice & Creamy Cilantro Sauce
Title
  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 1 13.5-Oz Can Light Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup Long Grain White Rice
  • 2 tsps Vadouvan Curry Powder
  • 2 oz Salted Butter
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1¼ cups Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1 lb Red Cabbage
  • 2 Poblano Or Bell Peppers
  • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
  • ¼ cup Cilantro Sauce
Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Arrange two oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; medium dice the leaves. Cut off and discard the stems of the poblano or bell peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. (Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling poblano peppers.) In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, cilantro sauce, and 2 tablespoons of the coconut milk. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Prepare & bread the chicken
2 Prepare & bread the chicken

Melt the butter in a large bowl in the microwave (or melt in a medium pot on the stove, then transfer to a large bowl). Add the curry powder and mustard; whisk until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper. On a large plate, combine the breadcrumbs and parmesan; season with salt and pepper. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Working one piece at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned chicken in the spiced butter (letting the excess drip off), then in the seasoned breadcrumbs (pressing gently to adhere). Transfer to a sheet pan.

Roast the chicken
3 Roast the chicken

Drizzle the breaded chicken with olive oil. Place on the upper oven rack and roast 19 to 21 minutes, or until browned and cooked through.* Remove from the oven.

*The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.

Meanwhile, transfer the diced cabbage and diced peppers to a separate sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Place on the lower oven rack and roast 17 to 19 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Evenly top with the ponzu sauce; carefully stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Meanwhile, carefully rinse the rice (sifting through for any impurities). Drain thoroughly. In a medium pot (or the same pot used to melt the butter), combine the rice, remaining coconut milk, a big pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup of water. Stir to combine. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 14 to 17 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Serve the roasted chicken with the coconut rice and finished vegetables. Top the chicken with the creamy cilantro sauce. Enjoy!
