  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 1 pound)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1 can (13.66 ounces) coconut milk
  • 1 medium mango, peeled and chopped
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced fresh basil, divided
  • 1/4 cup miso paste
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha chili sauce
  • 2 cups cooked jasmine rice
  • 2 medium limes, quartered


  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Brown chicken on both sides. Add garlic and ginger; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Stir in coconut milk, mango, green onions, ¼ cup basil, miso paste and chili sauce. Cook and stir until sauce is slightly reduced and a thermometer inserted in chicken reads 170°, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup basil. Serve with rice and limes.

Test Kitchen tips
  • This recipe also works well with seafood–especially shrimp or scallops. It’s also great with clams or mussels.
  • Go meatless...tofu and vegetables work great.
  • Like it spicy? Turn up the heat even more with an additional Sriracha chili sauce!
