For a speedy after-work dinner, get the chicken marinating before you leave the house in the morning. Fragrant jasmine rice rounds out a simple menu—freeze the leftover coconut milk in an ice cube tray to use in a future curry supper. Add a salad of thinly sliced cucumbers or a quick Napa cabbage slaw.

Instructions

  1. Mix soy, honey, sherry, sesame and peanut oils, ginger, and garlic in medium bowl. Place chicken in marinade; cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

  2. Heat oven to 400°F. Remove chicken from marinade (discard). Arrange in greased baking dish; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Roast 15 minutes or until no longer pink in center. Meanwhile, mix rice, coconut milk, water, salt, and coconut in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed.

  3. Serve chicken with rice, garnished with basil or cilantro.
