Cook once, eat twice! With our Dinner to Lunch recipe option, you’ve got the evening covered plus a marvellous mise en place for a second meal the next day. Grilled chicken breasts get a Southeast Asia-inspired marinade of curried coconut milk with a shot of lime for acid and honey for sugar. At supper, serve them sliced with bok choy hot off the barbecue on a bed of zested and spiced jasmine rice. Come lunchtime, the chilled and shredded chicken is tossed with cabbage, carrots and scallions for a superduper slaw finished with a scattering of chopped peanuts. ***Lunch cooking time: 5 min.

Cook the rice
Heat the BBQ on medium-high, making sure to oil the grill first. Zest the lime. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ½ cups water (double for 4 dinner portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 14 to 16 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add ½ the lime zest, ½ tbsp of the spices (double for 4 dinner portions) and S&P. Fluff and keep warm.

Mise en place
Meanwhile, juice the lime. Remove the root ends of the bok choy and halve lengthwise (quarter if large); toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the remaining spices and S&P. Thinly slice the scallions. In a medium bowl, make the dressing by combining the coconut milk, lime juice, honey, curry paste, remaining lime zest, ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. In a large bowl, combine the chicken and ⅓ of the dressing. Set all but 2 tbsp of the remaining dressing (double for 4 dinner portions) aside in the fridge.

Grill the chicken
Remove the chicken* from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Grill on the BBQ (or in a grill pan heated with a drizzle of oil on medium-high, partially covered), brushing with any remaining marinade, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. Set ½ the chicken aside in the fridge.
