Coconut Chicken With Sauted Bok Choy Recipe

  1. This is so good I can’t wait for you to read this. Throw the first 7 ingredients into a food processor and process with a few pulses. Add the coconut milk, sugar, ginger, turmeric and serrano chile in and process until smooth. Pour mixture into a large sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken chunks and seal. Marinate the chicken in the fridge for an hour, flipping the bag at 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill or skillet to a medium-high. Remove chicken from bag and discard the marinade. Thread the chicken onto skewers, and give a tiny sprinkle of salt to them. Grill or saute until cooked through, roughly 6 minutes on each side. Remove from heat and set aside to keep warm.
  3. Back in the skillet, add the oil, ginger, garlic and chile. Let bloom for 30 seconds. Add the pak choi and saute until slightly wilted, 3 minutes total.
