Sesame Roasted Chicken with Coconut Rice

For a speedy after-work dinner, get the chicken marinating before you leave the house in the morning. Fragrant jasmine rice rounds out a simple menu—freeze the leftover coconut milk in an ice cube tray to use in a future curry supper. Add a salad of thinly sliced cucumbers or a quick Napa cabbage slaw.
