Coconut Milk Braised Turkey

under 60mins

Ingredients for servings

  • 1.5 cup(s) long-grain rice, rinsed

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 boneless turkey breast, sliced into 4 pieces

  • 1 can coconut milk, shaken

  • 0.3333 cup(s) cider vinegar

  • 0.3333 cup(s) soy sauce

  • 1 large head garlic, smashed and peeled

  • 3 bay leaves

  • 0.25 tsp crushed red pepper

  • 8 oz baby spinach


  • In a medium saucepan, combine the rice and 1.5 cups water. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until the water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Set aside, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium dutch oven or other heavy pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey (in batches if necessary) and cook, turning, until browned, about 8 minutes.

  • Add the coconut milk, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, bay leaves and crushed red pepper; bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer, turning the turkey halfway through, until the turkey is cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
