Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart rectangular baking dish with cooking spray. In a small saucepan bring the water and coconut milk to boiling; pour into prepared baking dish. Stir in rice and salt. Bake, covered, 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sweet pepper; cook 5 minutes or just until tender, stirring occasionally. Add ginger and garlic; cook and stir 1 minute more. Stir onion mixture and peas into partially cooked rice.
In a medium bowl combine the next four ingredients (through soy sauce); stir in chicken. Spoon chicken mixture over rice mixture.
Bake, covered, 15 to 20 minutes more or until heated through and rice is tender. Sprinkle with coconut (if desired) and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges and/or additional chili paste.
