Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking, turning occasionally, until firm and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool slightly. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick slices. Do not clean the pan.
While the chicken cooks, prepare the vegetables.

2

Prep the vegetables

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.
  • Trim the tops from the okra; cut the okra in half lengthwise.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.

3

Cook the vegetables

In the same pan used for the chicken, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the broccoli, okra, mushrooms, and white parts of the scallions, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is just tender and the okra and mushrooms start to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the vegetables cook, prepare the coconut curry sauce.

4

Make the coconut curry sauce

  • Juice half the lime; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lime; cut 1 lime into wedges.]
In a small sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the lemongrass paste and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, stir until well combined, and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] lime juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the vegetables to individual bowls, top with the chicken, and spoon over as much coconut curry sauce as you like. Garnish with the green parts of the scallions and serve the lime wedges and any remaining sauce on the side.
