- In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink in center. Stir in coconut milk and taco seasoning mix. Reduce heat to medium; simmer uncovered 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened.
- Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, chile garlic sauce, brown sugar and gingerroot with whisk. Add spinach, carrots and green onions; toss to coat.
- Heat bowls as directed on package. Divide spinach mixture among bowls. Divide chicken mixture among bowls; top each with peanuts and cilantro.
- To shred spinach, remove any long stems, then stack leaves, roll up like a cigar and thinly slice.
- To save a little time when making these taco bowls with coconut chicken, opt for bagged pre-shredded carrots.
- Unsweetened coconut milk is usually found in the global foods aisle of the grocery store. It may have separated while in the can; just stir to blend it.
