  1. Begin by placing the broccoli and cauliflower on a baking tray and bake at 350 degree for approximately 20 minutes.

    Meanwhile, heat your Dutch oven on medium high heat. Add the chicken with 1/2 the paprika, salt and pepper and brown on all sides. This will take 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from the pan. Next add in the oil and warm. Once warm, add in jalapeno and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Now, add in the lemongrass paste and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add in the remaining seasoning and stir.

    Pour the coconut milk and simmer for 2 minutes mixing well. Now, add in the chicken and simmer for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, add in the broccoli and cauliflower and simmer for 5 minutes.

    Serve with rice and enjoy!
