This recipe was born when I was tossing around ideas for different side dishes for when we grilled. It's wonderful with jerk-style meats and with seafood because the sweetness of the coconut milk works well with the spices.
1 1/4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 cup light coconut milk
1 cup long-grain parboiled rice (such as Uncle Ben's)
Bring broth and coconut milk to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; add rice. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; keep warm.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Add squash; cook 8 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in thyme and remaining ingredients; cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Add rice to squash mixture, stirring to combine.
