Coconut-Poached Chicken

Coconut-Poached Chickenwith Jasmine Rice and Crispy Shallots

Poaching chicken in coconut milk is a gentle cooking technique often used in Thai cuisine to infuse the meat with nutty flavor, while keeping it juicy. Here, it's the rich and creamy star, paired with bright scallion, Thai chile, fresh herbs, lime, and soy over fragrant jasmine rice. Fried shallots are a quick and easy garnish for adding serious crunch—and a #platedpics-worthy finish.
