Ingredients

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)
    .5 tsp red curry powder
    coarse salt and ground pepper
    2 Tbsp plus 1 tsp vegetable oil
    2 packed cups cilantro leaves
    .5 tsp grated peeled ginger
    1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

    .75 cup coconut milk
    1 cup basmati rice

Directions

serves 4
1. Sprinkle chicken with curry powder, season with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil over medium-low. Add chicken and cook until golden and opaque throughout, 30 to 35 minutes, turning once.
2. In a blender, combine 1 Tbsp oil, cilantro, ginger, lime juice, vinegar, sugar, and 3 Tbsp water. Puree until smooth, set aside.
3. In a medium saucepan, heat remaining tsp oil over medium. Add shallot and turnmeric, season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallot begins to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Add coconut milk and 1 cup water; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook just until rice tender, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork just before serving. Serve rice topped with chicken and drizzled with sauce.
