Directions

  1. Set aside ⅓ cup (75 mL) coconut milk. Into medium saucepan, add remaining coconut milk, rice, 1 cup (250 mL) water and salt. Bring to a boil. Stir in beans and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook 18 to 20 min. or until rice has absorbed all the liquid. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, 5 min.; fluff with fork.

  2. Meanwhile, melt coconut oil in large, nonstick skillet on medium heat. Cook onions, ginger, garlic and thyme 5 min., until onion is tender. Stir in chicken, barbecue sauce, cumin and remaining ⅓ cup (75 mL) coconut milk. Cook 5 min., stirring, until chicken mixture is heated through. Squeeze on juice of one lime; mix well.

  3. Scoop rice onto 4 plates. Serve chicken mixture over top. Garnish with remaining lime into wedges and green onion.
