Edible Bling By Rachie
4 cups chopped bok choy
1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 pound skinless boneless chicken breast halves, 4 (4-ounce) halves
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup sake (I used rice vinegar)
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon red curry paste
1/4 cup flaked coconut
2 cups quick cooking jasmine rice
2 (14-ounce) can light coconut milk
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish
Arrange bok choy and red pepper in bottom of slow cooker. Season 4 chicken breast halves all over with salt and black pepper and place on top of bok choy.
In a small bowl, whisk together broth, sake, sesame oil, ginger, and curry paste. Pour mixture over chicken.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.
In a small skillet toast flaked coconut on low heat until lightly toasted, about 5 to 8 minutes. In a medium saucepan, add rice and coconut milk and set pan over medium-high heat, bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in toasted coconut.
Spoon rice onto a serving platter. Top with chicken, bok choy, bell peppers and sauce from slow cooker. Garnish with cilantro.
