Yummy chicken cooked in coconut sauce with kaffir lime leaves and pineapple served over rice with a side of Asian greens.
1. Place rice in a saucepan, cover with x 1.5 amount of water. Cover with a lid, cook on lowest heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, stand for 5 minutes. Stir carefully with a fork.

2. Heat a large frypan with oil over high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes, adding crushed garlic and 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce (see notes).

3. Reduce heat to medium. Chop capsicums, drain pineapple (reserve juice) and slice lime leaves (see notes). Add to pan as you go.

4. Stir in coconut milk, reserved pineapple juice and 1-2 tbsp soy sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

5. Trim, halve and rinse pak choy. Heat another frypan (see notes) with oil and 2 tsp soy sauce and cook over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes or until tender.

6. Serve chicken pineapple curry over rice with a side of pak choy. Sprinkle with chopped corianders to garnish.

Notes:
Use 1 tbsp red curry paste instead of sweet chilli sauce for a more distinct flavour.

When preparing lime leaves, fold and remove the core then thinly slice. Some find it easier to roll the leaf then slice.

Alternatively transfer chicken curry to a serving bowl and use the same frypan to cook pak choy. If you prefer, you can chop and add pak choy to curry.
