1. Finely slice white & light green parts of 2-3 green onions. Peel skin of ginger with vegetable peeler or side of spoon. Finely mince or grate ginger. Put sliced green onions, ginger (about 1 Tbsp), 2 Tbsp olive oil, and juice of half of lemon (about 2 Tbsp) in a shallow bowl. Whisk together with fork.
2. Rinse and peel carrots. Remove ends. Cut into 2-3 inch segments and half or quarter lengthwise. Place to bowl with dressing and toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let marinate for at least 10-15 minutes while you finish prepping the entree.
3. Rinse kale, remove leafy parts from thick stems, and roughly chop. Peel and dice shallot. Rinse cilantro, remove leaves from stems, and chop. Set aside.
4. Remove chicken breasts from packaging and pat dry. Slice into long, even thin strips. In a bowl, toss chicken with 1 teaspoon of jerk seasoning until evenly coated. Increase or decrease seasoning amount based on your preference for spiciness (3/4 tsp for milder, up to 2 tsp for very spicy).
5. In a medium pot, add rice, 3/4 c coconut milk, 3/4 c water, and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. When boiling, stir, cover, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook until liquid is absorbed and rice is fluffy, about 20 minutes. Add additional coconut milk if it becomes too dry.
6. Preheat large skillet to medium heat with 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add shallot and a pinch salt. Cook shallot until starting to turn translucent, 3-4 minutes. Add kale to pan and cook 1-2 minutes, stirring/tossing regularly, until bright green. Add 1/2 cup coconut milk and 1/4 cup water to pan. Let kale simmer, stirring occasionally, until tender and liquid reduces down, about 8-10 minutes.
8. Preheat large skillet with 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium heat. Cook chicken about 3-5 minutes per side until slightly browned and cooked through. Work in batches if necessary to avoid crowding your pan (to ensure browning).
9. Remove kale from heat. Toss with juice from the other half of lemon, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir chopped cilantro into rice.
