  • 2 red chilies, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ to ¾ pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped into bite sizes
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Heat ⅓ cup of the coconut milk in a large stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the yellow onion and red chilies and saute, stirring frequently, until softened, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and chicken and cook 1 to 2 minutes to brown the chicken, but don’t cook through.
  3. Add the cooked brown rice, chicken broth, Lemongrass Basil Simmer sauce, lime juice, corn, and sea salt, and stir well.
  4. Bring to a gentle boil, then immediately lower heat to a simmer. Cover and cook 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  5. Serve with fresh basil.
