Keep your pressure cooker handy this spring! You can use it for lighter dishes like this Thai Coconut Chicken recipe! The perfect mix of sweet and savory! I like to serve mine over rice but also great in lettuce wraps!

1 tablespoon mild yellow curry
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 can (14 oz.) coconut milk
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup basmati rice

Fresh cilantro garnish
