Island Bites: Spicy Orange Glazed Chicken & Coconut Rice

Updated on August 23, 2015
4.6 stars from 5 ratings of Orange Glazed Chicken & Coconut Rice

For the rice:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rice
  • 1 can (14oz) coconut milk
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbs vegetable oil
  • salt
  • unsweetened coconut flakes, toasted

Tips:

  • For a vegan version of this recipe, use vegetable broth or even water instead of the chicken broth.
  • Remember that coconut milk is not the same as coconut cream or cream of coconut. Coconut milk must be unsweetened.


Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, combine coconut milk, broth, oil and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in rice. Let the liquid reduce one or two minutes.
  2. Stir and cover, reduce heat to low. Let it simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
  3. Turn off the heat and stir in the toasted coconut flakes.

For the Chicken:

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cubed
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch, plus extra for a light coating
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tbs vinegar
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper
  • cilantro to garnish
  • 1/4 cup oil

Instructions:

  1. Add cornstarch and sugar to the orange juice, mix to dissolve. Reserve.
  2. Season cubed chicken with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Lightly coat the chicken with cornstarch.
  3. Heat oil in a pan at medium-high temperature. When the oil is hot, lightly brown chicken, about 1 minute per side.
  4. Add orange juice, red pepper flakes and vinegar. Let the chicken cook as the glaze thickens.
  5. Serve over coconut rice and garnish with cilantro.


* You could use tangerine instead of orange. It is delicious!

      Thanks for the comment! Btw, if you're gonna try the rice, be sure to use coconut milk not coconut cream (which is sweetened). Hope you like it!

      This looks like a wonderfully different and mouthwatering way to make chicken. I've never tired using coconut milk in cooking, but love the idea of using it to cook rice. Can't wait to try this! Voted up and share!
