- My Notes -

  • 1.25 pound Chicken Thigh - boneless
  • 4 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 3 tablespoon Arrowroot
  • 1 bunch Green Onion - diced (green part only)
  • 5 medium Carrots - chopped
  • 1 can Water Chestnuts - drained, chopped
  • 4 medium Bok Choy - chopped
  • 0.5 cup Coconut Milk - canned
  • 2 tablespoon Curry Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Ginger Root - fresh,minced
  • 1 cup Jasmine Rice
  • To make the rice… cook jasmine rice according to package instructions. When it is done, remove from heat, keep lid on and set aside until you are ready to eat. *You can add a button or two of fresh ginger root to the rice while it cooks, to make it fragrant.
  • Cut the chicken thighs into 3” by 1/2” thick strips.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Dredge the chicken strips through the arrowroot flour (this helps the chicken brown while sautéing) and then add to the pan. Do not keep the chicken moving. If you want it to brown, let it cook, flipping only once or twice at the most. Cook for 5-6 minutes until cooked through. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  • In the same pan, add 2 more tablespoons of coconut oil and sauté all the vegetables for 3-4 minutes, until they start to soften.
  • Do not shake the can of coconut. Gently open the can and use as much of the cream from the top as you can. Add the coconut cream and some of the coconut milk (1/2 cup total) to the skillet with the curry powder and fresh ginger root. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 2-3 more minutes. The vegetables should be easy to pierce now. Add the chicken back in and cook for an additional minute.
You may replace the arrow root with gluten free corn starch or omit altogether. Gluten free corn starch will also replace the arrow root.
To improve the digestibility of the jasmine rice, consider adding 50% more water and cooking an additional 10-12 minutes (until water is absorbed).
When you cook rice and then refrigerate it overnight, you will create resistant starch. If you eat this cold, you will be eating resistant starch which will likely set off your symptoms. Always reheat rice (and potato) before eating. This breaks the bonds of the resistant starch.
We recommend Native Forest brand canned coconut oil, without thickeners or sweeteners.
