  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 shallot diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 1/4 cups Arborio or jasmine rice
  • 2 cups broth
  • 1 – 15 oz can coconut milk or cream
  • 2 cups broccoli florets


  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup light soy sauce
  • Zest and juice of two oranges
  • 1 tsp Dijon
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 1 Tbsp water for slurry
  • 2 tsp ground ginger


  • Green onions chopped
  • Sesame seeds
  • Orange zest


  • Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl to make a slurry. Add slurry and remaining ingredients for glaze to a large, oven safe stockpot or braiser. Whisk well to combine. Bring to a boil and then turn down to low to slightly thicken.
  • Season cubed chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to glaze and cook 8-10 minutes over medium heat, turning regularly.
  • Remove chicken and remainder of glaze from pan and set aside. Cover with foil so it stays warm.
  • Add butter to pan over medium high heat to melt. Add shallot and garlic, cooking 3-4 minutes until starting to lightly brown. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Add rice and toast 2-3 minutes in butter. Carefully pour broth into pan. Add coconut cream. Whisk well and turn heat down to low. Cover and cook 15 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon and add chicken back to pan. Reserve extra glaze. Nestle broccoli florets around chicken. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Drizzle a few tablespoons of reserve glaze over top. Garnish with scallions, sesame seeds and orange zest. Serve remaining glaze on the side.
