Rhubarb Coconut Chicken

Rhubarb Coconut Chicken

We like to start Monday off “right” in our home. Getting back on the healthy track is a part of this “right” way, where we try to remove sugar from our diet, and we attempt to eat low-carb. Attempt is the key word here, as we both love grains of all sorts. Tonight we made a completely grain-and-gluten-free meal. Rhubarb coconut chicken is a dish with loads of flavor, and incredibly simple to make. It fills you up a lot more than what you would think. I was slightly nervous serving it for my boyfriend, but he liked it (yay!). This recipe is for 2 people for 2 days.

The Goodies:

  • 650 gr chicken breast
  • 1 red chili
  • 400 ml coconut milk (not light)
  • 1 chunk of fresh ginger
  • 400 gr of rhubarb
  • 1 tbsp yellow curry
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 head of cauliflower
  • A bundle of asparagus
  • Salt and pepper

The How:

  4. Leave the bag in the fridge for a couple of hours (if you have the time)
  5. Turn your oven on to 170 degrees Celsius
  6. Quickly stir fry your chicken on a pan, do not fully cook it
  7. Cut your rhubarb into bite size pieces
  8. Whip together the coconut milk, salt and pepper, and mix it with chunks of rhubarb
  9. Combine the chicken and the marinade on the pan with the coconut mixture in an ovenproof dish
  10. Place in oven for 20 minutes while you…
  11. Fry your asparagus with salt and pepper on your pan for 5-7 minutes and
  12. Make your cauliflower rice:
    1. Clean your cauliflower (rinse)
    2. Grate it roughly
    3. Pour boiling water over the grated cauliflower and leave it in the water for very short (10-20 sec)
    4. Drain straight away and add salt and pepper (you can also add chili, garlic, or any other spice you like)
  13. Serve all together once the chicken is done
  14. Eat eat eat!!! 🙂

We were afraid it would not fill us up, but surprisingly we felt full in a good way, and not in a bloated one. Let me know what you think about this dish!? It is a creative one, and you can serve it with any vegetables you like. Cauliflower rice is a great substitute for regular rice, and the texture and flavor is on point considering it is “just” a grated vegetable.

  • Our experience with cauliflower rice is that they get somewhat soggy. But! If you grate the cauliflower, mix it with salt and whatever spices you want and a tbsp. of melted coconut oil, put it on a baking tray with baking paper and bake it in the oven for approx. 30 mins at 220c, mixing a couple of times throughout the 30 mins, the texture and sauce-absorbing qualities will be just like actual rice. We love them that way!

    • Hi Jeppe,

      Thank you very much for your tip!

      We will have to try them that way too. I have previously made the rice on a pan as well, but baking is a new option.

      Kind Regards,
