In a medium saucepan, add the coconut milk, the water and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil. Add the basmati rice. Stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat. Keep covered until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10 minutes.

TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam, so don't peek!


While the rice is cooking, thinly slice the carrot into half-moons. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Thinly slice the red onion (see ingredients). Finely chop garlic. Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks. In a medium bowl, combine the oyster sauce, sweet chilli sauce, lemongrass & makrut lime stir-fry paste and a dash of water.


In a small bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar and a good pinch of sugar and salt. Scrunch the onion in your hands, then add to the pickling liquid. Add just enough water to cover the onion, then stir to combine. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the carrot, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the Asian greens, baby spinach and garlic and cook until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.


Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken, tossing, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add the oyster sauce mixture and cook, stirring, 1-2 minutes. Return the veggies to the pan, tossing to coat.


Drain the pickled onion. Divide the coconut rice between bowls. Top with the sweet chilli chicken and veggies. Spoon over any sauce from the pan. Serve with the pickled onion.
