Method

 
Place the chicken breast and coconut milk in a small pot on the stove and poach the chicken on medium-high, turning half way, for 10-12 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Remove from the pot, and slice  into 1/2 cm strips on the diagonal. Do not discard the coconut milk.

Meanwhile, in a separate pot of boiling water, cook the bok choi and broccoli for 2 minutes. Drain and divide into two serving bowls. Top with the cooked chicken, red pepper and sprouts.

To the pot in which you cooked the chicken, using the leftover coconut milk, add the soy sauce, honey, ginger and lime juice. Check for balance of flavours and add extra as needed.

Tip of the day

 
Smelly microwave?
Remove cooking smells from your microwave oven by simply slicing a cucumber, spreading it out on a plate and cooking it in the oven at 100% for five minutes.
