Instructions

Prep
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce.

Remove outer layer of lemongrass, then cut into quarters crosswise. Using the back of a wooden spoon forcefully tap the lemongrass to bruise. Trim snap peas. Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges. Peel, then mince or grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl).

Cook ginger rice
2

Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then rice and half the ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add 1 1/4 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min.

Pan-fry chicken
3

While rice cooks, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry, until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. (NOTE: It's okay if chicken doesn't cook all the way through at this step!) Transfer chicken to a plate.

Start lemongrass sauce
4

Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add lemongrass, Thai Seasoning and remaining ginger. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Add coconut milk, soy sauce, 1/4 cup water and 2 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl). Bring to a boil over high heat. Add chicken, carrots and snap peas.

Finish lemongrass sauce
5

Reduce heat to medium-low, then cover and cook, until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.** When chicken is done, use tongs to transfer to a large plate. Using two forks, shred chicken into bite-sized pieces. Remove and discard lemongrass from pan then return chicken to sauce. Stir in lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and serve
6

Fluff rice with a fork, then stir in lime zest and season with salt. Divide rice between bowls. Top with lemongrass chicken and veggies, squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
