Sweet Chilli, Ginger & Soy Chicken on Coconut Rice

This meal comes alive with the fantastic flavours of sweet chilli, ginger, coriander and mint, plus the richness of coconut rice. Using chicken thighs in this dish means the chicken is extra-tasty and remains moist as it cooks.


Step 1.
For the coconut rice:
heat the oil over a moderate heat and add the onion, cinnamon stick and coconut. Gently fry until the onion is soft. Add the drained rice and stock, mix well and bring to the boil.

Step 2.
Turn the heat down to the lowest setting, put the lid on tightly and cook for 20 minutes without uncovering. Remove from the heat and set aside without uncovering for 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff up with a fork.

Step 3.
For the sweet chilli, ginger & soy chicken:
preheat the oven to 200degC.

Step 4.
Put the chicken and marinade into a bowl and mix well. Marinate for 20 minutes, or overnight.

Step 5.
Pour the oil over the bottom of a roasting pan. Add the chicken thighs into the pan and place in the oven and for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Remove from the oven and slice each thigh in half lengthways.

Step 6.
Serve the chicken on the coconut rice with the peanuts, mint, coriander, tomatoes, cucumber and zest sprinkled on top.

Step 7.
Serve a small bowl of Kikkoman Sweet Chilli, Ginger & Soy Marinade & Sauce on the side for dipping.
