A fruit forward, lightly oaked Chardonnay—like those from California—harmonizes well with this dish's creamy coconut sauce and basmati rice.
Peel onion, cut in half, and then cut halves into quarters. Cut green onion crosswise into slices and zucchini into medallion-sized pieces. In a large bowl, toss zucchini and onion with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
In a small saucepan, combine rice, water, and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook over low heat for approx. 10 min. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, for approx. another 10 min. Pat dry chicken breast with a paper towel. Cut into bite-sized pieces.
Preheat oven to 200°C/390°F. Thread chicken, zucchini, and red onion onto wooden skewers. In a large frying pan, heat up olive oil over medium heat and sauté skewers for approx. 2 – 3 min. per side. Then, place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and place in preheated oven at 200°C/390°F and bake for approx. 10 – 12 min.
Finely mince garlic. Then, in a small saucepan, mix together garlic, coconut milk, soy sauce, and sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook for approx. 5 – 6 min. until creamy and slightly thick. Meanwhile, in a grease-free frying pan, toast sesame seeds over medium heat for approx. 1 – 2 min. until lightly brown and fragrant. Finally, fluff rice with a fork, transfer to a plate, top with chicken and vegetable skewers, and drizzle with coconut milk sauce. Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Enjoy!
