Cooking Steps

  1. Cook rice

    Cook rice

    Preheat oven to 450ºF. In a small pot, combine rice, ¾ cup water, and ¼ teaspoon salt, and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir once, reduce heat to medium low, cover pot, and simmer until water is fully absorbed, 10-12 minutes. Remove pot from heat and let stand, still covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork, then cover again to keep warm until ready to serve.

  2. Prepare ingredients

    Prepare ingredients

    While rice cooks, line a baking sheet with foil. Halve bok choy lengthwise and rinse thoroughly (it tends to hide a lot of dirt between its leaves); cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces, keeping bulbs and leaves separate. Rinse remaining produce. Thinly slice carrots crosswise on a diagonal. Pat chicken dry with paper towel, place on 1 half of prepared sheet, and rub all over with 2 teaspoons canola oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper as desired.

  3. Roast chicken and vegetables

    Roast chicken and vegetables

    Add carrots and bok choy bulbs to other half of sheet; toss with 2 teaspoons canola oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and pepper. Arrange in a single layer; roast until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink and vegetables are tender and beginning to brown, 10-12 minutes (move on to Step 4—but don't forget to come back!). Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside to rest, 5 minutes. Then, shred chicken using 2 forks or roughly chop.

  4. Blend aromatics

    Blend aromatics

    While chicken and vegetables roast, roughly chop cilantro leaves and stems. Trim and discard skin of ginger; roughly chop. Roughly chop garlic. Peel onion and cut into small dice. Open coconut milk; measure out ¼ cup and add to a blender or food processor, along with curry paste, ginger, garlic, 1 small handful bok choy leaves, half of cilantro, and 2 tablespoons canola oil. Blend until smooth.

  5. Make green curry

    Make green curry

    Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil in a large high-sided pan over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add onion; sauté, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add blended aromatics; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Add remaining coconut milk. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium high; simmer until flavors have melded, 2-3 minutes more. Season with ¾ teaspoon salt and pepper; remove pan from heat.

  6. Plate green chicken curry

    If you have a zester and want to infuse your curry with even more flavor, zest up to ½ lime into pan with curry, still off heat. Halve lime. Add roasted vegetables, shredded chicken, and juice of 1 lime to pan with curry. Add remaining bok choy leaves to pot with rice; stir to wilt, then divide between serving bowls. Spoon over Thai green chicken curry and garnish with remaining cilantro. Dig in!
