Smooth, sumptuous and ever so simple. Who knew that combining sautéed lemongrass with a splash of coconut milk could yield such enticing results? (We did—but when we sprinkled some of our Hot Nori & Lemongrass spice blend in there, we were blown away.) Drizzle this magic potion over chicken breasts seared to juicy golden. Round out the plates with carrots and cauliflower florets oven-roasted until just tender to the bite, and a bed of sticky rice that these luscious flavours can stick to.

Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place the rice in a strainer and rinse under cold water, agitating it for 1 min., until the water runs clear. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 18 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.

Roast the vegetables
Halve the cauliflower florets (or quarter if very large). Halve the carrots lengthwise. On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Arrange in a single layer and roast, stirring halfway, 18 to 20 min., until lightly browned and tender. Switch the oven to broil, 2 to 3 min., if extra colour is desired. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm spot.

Cook the chicken
In a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan. Let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.

Make the sauce
In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the lemongrass, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the coconut milk; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 min., until slightly thickened.
