Thai Pesto Chicken w/Coconut Lime Rice
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
3 tblspn fresh lime juice
2 tblspn unsalted dry-roast peanuts
2 tblspn fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves
3/4 tspn salt
2 tspn honey
1/2 tspn dried crushed red pepper
3 tblspn olive oil
Process all the above ingredients in food processor until smooth, and toss with sauted chicken (or shrimp) until coated.
(I couldn't find unsalted peanuts, so I just cut the salt out of the recipe)
Combine 1 cup light coconut milk with water and bring to boil. Add 1 1/2 cup uncooked jasmine rice, reduce heat and simmer 20-25 minutes until tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1 1/2 tblspn fresh lime juice (and 1 tspn of lime zest if you REALLY want it to zing!)
Serve chicken over rice for tasty chicken dinner of awesomeness! (or without rice for slightly less awesomeness)
P.S. You're welcome!
