Coconut Rice

One of our favorite meals to make especially on the grill in the summertime is my Jamaican Jerk Chicken! So much flavor and spice you wouldn’t think you need anything else… but this coconut rice is the perfect side to go with it!

It balances out all of those intense spices and the heat as well but has such a nice flavor from the coconut milk that really enhances the dish.

Not only is this side dish super delicious but its easy to make and is a great recipe to use for meal prep since it makes a ton!

This Coconut Rice has so much richness from soaking up all of that goodness from the coconut milk it cooks in – with flavors from green onions, thyme and even a little kick from a habanero if you’re feeling adventurous!

(NOTE: you can skip the habanero all together if you don’t want any heat)
