Coconut Curry Chicken & Rice, you know you want to

I picked this up from a friend a couple years ago and it keeps me fed pretty regularly because it's relatively easy and makes a ton of food at once. Active cooking time is ~30 minutes with a total time of ~60 minutes, depending on how you reduce the sauce.



Tools:
  • measuring cup
  • table spoon
  • 1 small pot
  • 2 pans, 1 deep

Parts:
  • music
  • wine and/or beer
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk
  • 1 cup white or jasmine rice
  • 1.5-2 cups water depending on the rice
  • ~2lb chicken breast
  • ~2tbs curry, I use red & yellow curries
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 onion
  • ~1/4cup shitty white wine
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • optional:Cinnamon - I just tried it tonight and it tasted pretty good

First things first, put on some music and pour yourself a glass of wine or a beer, because fvck being sober



Slice the chicken, or cube it...it's chicken so it'll be hard to mess this up


Cover it in olive oil and throw some S&P on there. Toss it in the deeper pan but don't turn the stove on



Fresh onion, I think you know what to do next.




Measure out 1 cup rice, dump it


That's looping a lot faster than I had intended. Oh well, quit being so cynical and enjoy the novelty.


Here's the tricky part!
  1. Add water to the rice and put it on the stove
  2. Throw some butter & olive oil in another pan
  3. Turn the burner with the rice on high and leave the lid off
  4. Turn the burner with the oil/butter on medium, leave the lid off
  5. Turn the burner with the chicken on high-ish, add the lid
  6. The butter/oil should start to bubble when the butter melts, throw the onion in when it does


Holy sh!t, three things cooking at once Not pictured: chicken



Once the rice starts the boil, reduce the heat to simmer and add the lid.


Now's a good time to measure out the spices. I've been using 1tbs yellow & 1tbs red. I usually throw some cayenne pepper in too and tonight I added some cinnamon for sh!ts and giggles



Crush up the bay leaf, toss it in the mix



The chicken should steam/cook in its own juices & the oil mixture. This keeps it tender



When the onions start to caramelize, add the spices and drop the heat down low


ACTION SHOT




By now, the chicken should look disgusting as fvck, like a sweaty albino kid with really dark freckles. Take the lid off, let that sh!t breathe for a minute



Once the chicken juices boil off a little bit, add the wine to the onions



Dump the whole mixture in with the chicken. If there are some spices left, add a little more wine and wash it around, add that to the chicken too and reduce to medium




Beef cube wants to go for a swim



Coconut milk makes everything better



Let it simmer for at least 20 minutes. The longer it sits, the more it will reduce






Serve over the rice, save the rest ....I don't have a picture. I ate leftover spaghetti for dinner.

Selectively masked parts of a video, it's called a cinemagraph.
