For the sauce:
0.5 oz. cilantro
14 oz. can coconut milk
9.2 oz. almond butter
4 tbsp. fish sauce
2 limes, juiced
1-inch piece fresh ginger, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp. Thai red curry paste
4 tbsp. coconut aminos
For the chicken & bok choy:
3 lbs. chicken drumsticks
1 lb. baby bok choy
4 red peppers
1 tbsp. olive oil
0.5 oz. cilantro, chopped
4 tbsp. chopped peanuts, to serve
How to Prepare
Place all ingredients for the sauce into a large food processor and process until smooth and creamy.
Transfer the chicken drumsticks into a large zip-lock bag and add 8oz of the sauce. Coat the chicken in the sauce and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight, in the refrigerator. Set aside the remaining sauce to use later.
When ready to cook the chicken, preheat the oven to 375°F .
Lay the chicken drumsticks on a large baking sheet and place into the hot oven. After 20 minutes, flip the chicken over and cook for an additional 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
Remove the chicken from the oven and increase the oven temperature to 450°F . Scatter the bok choy and peppers onto a baking sheet, toss in the olive oil and roast for approximately 10 minutes, or until wilted and slightly charred around the edges.
Serve the chicken with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and serve alongside the bok choy and peppers.
Serve the dish with optional rice.
